Pizza Dough turned into Ciabatta Bread


I love making homemade bread (oh my, remember this), and even my own pizza dough (seen here), but let's face it - with two small kids, a third on the way, and the desire to shower OCCASIONALLY, I don't always have the time.  One of my favorite short cuts is to ask my local pizzeria to sell me some pizza dough.  They will!  And now that I live in New York, I can say things like "my local pizzeria" and sound more legit.  So here's an easy way to turn store-bought pizza dough into something that resembles ciabatta bread:

Preheat oven to 425.  Divide dough into thirds.  Shape with lightly oiled hands into 4-inch rounds, roughly 1/2 inch in thickness.  Place on lightly oiled, parchment-lined baking sheets.  Poke all over with a fork.  Sprinkle with Italian seasoning, coarse sea salt and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.  Bake for 10-15 minutes, keeping an eye on the bread, until it's nice and golden on top.         

This are delicious solo, or sliced in half and used as a vessel for this.

OMG! This is fab! I am definitely going to try this, Siri. Do you think it'd also be okay using Trader Joe's pizza dough or should I go to a pizzeria? My local Italian deli, Lucci's, sells fresh made dough, too.

I'm sure TJ's dough would work fine!

We have a pizzeria here in Tampa that (no joke) imports NY tap water so their dough comes out tasting legit (it is literally the closest to NY pizza we've had in FL since leaving NY) BUT THEY WILL NOT/ABSOLUTELY REFUSE TO SELL THEIR DOUGH :( I am going to try with grocery store dough :(

Are you interested in attaining enlightenment and personal growth?

Try doing the following two yoga exercises daily:

Sodarshan Kriya Yoga

Sat Nam Kriya Yoga

Are you interested in preventing and curing cancer, Alzheimer's, high blood pressure, and many other common diseases using an inexpensive, natural indian spice called turmeric?

Take two teaspoons full of turmeric powder mixed with a cup of warm soy milk (or any kind of non-dairy milk that you'd like). Also eat 2 or 3 black peppercorns along with it, as the pepper helps your body absorb the turmeric better. You also need fat for the turmeric to be absorbed properly, which is why drinking turmeric mixed in water won't work. You have to drink it with milk or some fatty based liquid. Do this twice a day and you will start to feel amazing within a couple of weeks.

Lastly, please read the following two ancient indian scriptures which talk about the divine love of God:

Govinda Lilamrta PDF
