Warm, aromatic yeast bread, hot from the oven - with no kneading, AND in under 2 hours? Here it is. Add Pizza Dough Flavor for over-the-top flavor, and/or cheese powder to turn it into cheese bread.

Blitz Bread


Yield: One loaf, 12 servings

Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil (plus additional for drizzling)
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 3 1/2 cups Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 tablespoon instant yeast
  • 4 teaspoons Pizza Dough Flavor, optional

Directions:
  1. Lightly grease a 9" x 13" pan, and drizzle 1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil in the bottom.
  2. Combine all of the ingredients, and beat at high speed with an electric mixer for 60 seconds.
  3. Scoop the sticky batter into the prepared pan, cover the pan, and let it rise at room temperature for 60 minutes, till it's become puffy.
  4. While the dough is rising, preheat the oven to 375°F.
  5. Gently poke the dough all over with your index finger.
  6. Drizzle it lightly with olive oil, and sprinkle with pizza seasoning, and/or the dried herbs of your choice, if desired.
  7. Bake the bread until it's golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes.
