This is really fantastic, especially drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with salt. I was given this by a friend - I can't remember which cookbook it is from, but the notes say it makes excellent panini and bruschetta as well. I've made it without the sesame seeds, without baking tiles, and without the water spraying, and it still turned out delicious.
- 1 packet dried yeast
- 1½ cups lukewarm water
- 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
- 17½ fluid ounces golden durum flour (or semolina - if using semoline, grind in a blender a quarter cup at a time with some of the white flour until it becomes powdery)
- 2 teaspoons sea salt
- 1¾ cups white flour
- ¼ cup sesame seeds (unhulled)
