How to make it

  • Place water, milk, sugar, salt, shortening and olive oil in bowl and dissolve sugar and salt. Stir in yeast, corn meal, and flour and knead to form a soft, but not-too sticky dough (8-10 minutes). Allow to rest, covered with a towel for about 45 minutes.
  • Deflate dough very gently before using and allow it to rest a further 15 minutes.
  • You can store dough for up to 2 days in a plastic bag in refrigerator.
  • Breadsticks:
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and sprinkle with corn meal.
  • Roll out dough on a floured board, about 1/4 inch thick. Cut with a pastry wheel or anyway you can, into long strips (10-12 inches long) and roll with tips of fingers so it is cylinder shaped (like a miniature baguette.)
  • Gently lift bread sticks onto baking sheet. Brush with oil or butter. Sprinkle with cheese (or coarse salt, poppy seeds, sesame seeds, herbs, caraway seeds).
  • You can also make them thicker and let rise 20 minutes. Paint with an egg wash and sprinkle salt, sesame seeds, or whatever you like on them.
  • Bake 5-8 minutes until evenly browned. They will crisp as they cool.
