Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep

  • 3 cups warm water
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 2 1/4 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 6 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  • Stand Mixer
  • Large Bowl
  • Step 1

    In a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook attachment, combine the water, sugar, and yeast, and let sit for 5 to 10 minutes or until the mixture begins to bubble on top.

  • Step 2

    Add half the flour, salt, then the remaining flour. On low speed, combine the mixture until the flour is incorporated, about 2 to 5 minutes. Increase speed to medium and knead mixture until a smooth ball is formed, about 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Grease a large bowl with oil. Add the dough, cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and let sit in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

  • Step 4

    When the dough has risen, punch down and lightly knead back into a ball, cover, and let rest for 1 hour. After the second rest, transfer dough to a lightly floured work surface. Divide dough in half and shape each piece into an oval, tucking the ends underneath. Make 3 scores on the top of the loaves.

  • Step 5

    Install the Accessory Frame in the bottom level of the unit, then place the Pizza Stone on top.

  • Step 6

    Turn the left-hand dial to select SPECIALTY ROAST, set STAGE 1 temperature to 500F, and set time to 10 minutes. Push the right-hand dial to set STAGE 2, then set temperature to 300F and time to 30 minutes. Select START/STOP to begin preheating (preheating will take approx. 20 minutes).

  • Step 7

    When unit is preheated and ADD FOOD and PRS STRT displays, open door, slide a floured pizza peel under one of the loaves and transfer to the hot stone. Repeat with the second loaf. Close door and select START/STOP to begin cooking.

  • Step 8

    When cooking is complete, open door and remove bread with peel. Let cool completely before slicing.
