  • Roll it up like a cinnamon roll.  Use a serrated knife to cut the roll lengthwise half way through, leaving the very ends closed and uncut.  This causes the roll to open up.  Be careful to not cut all the way through.

  • Then cut the roll into 2 smaller rolls of equal size. Pinch the cut ends together. Place on a parchment-lined cookie sheet that doesn't have a lip. This lets you slide the loaves off the sheet onto the stone or steel. Cover and let rise for 1 hour or until puffy. During the last 30 minutes of rising, preheat the oven to 375°F. Put an oven stone or steel on a shelf in the middle of the oven.
  • Bake the loaves on the oven stone or steel. If you don't have an oven stone or steel bake the loaves on your parchment-lined cookie sheet. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes until golden brown and/or the internal temperature is at least 210°F
