I will provide you with the ingredients and instructions, even though they are provided in the links. See how much I love you?
3 1/4 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp yeast
2 tsp Kosher salt
1 1/2 cups lukewarm water
-Add all the ingredients for the Artisan dough in your mixer bowl. Using the dough hook attachment, mix at medium speed till a ball is formed. Remove dough from mixer bowl and place in a large bowl. Add 1 tbsp of Canola oil to the dough and flip over so both sides are covered. Cover with a towel and let rise for 2 hours. At the end of 2 hours you can now use this dough for crusts etc.
If you want to make bread; then you simply shape the dough into whatever shape you want with floured hands and using a floured work area. Cover one more time, and let rise for 45 minutes. Bake at 400F 27-30 minutes. The bread rises higher if you place an oven proof container with water onto the bottom floor of your oven. The steam from the water gives it a nice crusty outside texture and super moist and airy inside!

Till next time!!
