The recipe was adapted from All recipes. com.

  Ingredients:
3 cups unbleached flour
1 tablespoon light brown
sugar
1 1/3 cups warm water
(110 degrees F/45 degrees
C)
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3/4 cup grated asiago cheese
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1 (.25 ounce) package
active dry yeast
1 tsp. minced fresh thyme
1 tsp. minced fresh sage
2 gloves of garlic mashed and made into paste

1 egg
1 tablespoon water
2 tablespoons cornmeal

Heat water to about 115 degrees, add the yeast and let proof for about 5 minutes.  Add the sugar, salt, oil, herbs, cheese and flour and mix in stand mixer .  Add more flour if needed.  Place in greased bowl until doubled. (about and hr)  Knock down and shape into loaves and place on parchment paper that was sprinkled with cornmeal and place  on a peel or cookie sheet upside down. (that way you can slide it onto the pizza stone very easily.  When ready slice the top with 3 cuts.
About 30 minutes before you're ready to cook the bread, place your pizza stone in the oven and heat to 375.  After 30 minutes put bread in, use a spray bottle and spray the inside of oven and do this again in about 3 minutes. and cook for about 30-35 minutes until gold brown.  The spraying will give your bread a wonder crust and will be tender on the inside.  Cool *if you can wait* and cut and serve.
Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day and Remember to Find the time to do ALL the things YOU love.
