Ciao Ciabatta

Ciabatta style bread

3 cups of water,
1/2 teaspoon of yeast,
1 1/2 teaspoons of sugar,
2 teaspoons of salt

6 cups of bread flour ( or 1 cups whole wheat and 5 cups bread flour)
knead briefly. The dough will be wet and sticky.

Cover the bowl and let rest on the kitchen counter overnight or for at least 8 hours.
Preheat oven to 450 - 500 degrees.

Oil a baking sheet with olive oil.
Divide the dough into four parts (maybe dust with a bit of flour). Gently shape each part into loaves and put on baking sheet.
Brush with a little olive oil and sprinkle with salt (optional).
Bake for about 20-25 mins.
