How to Make Ciabatta Bread

In this video, you’ll see how to make Italian ciabatta bread from scratch. There’s no kneading required with this method. The loaf comes out of the oven with a crisp, light crust and a chewy, tender, moist, and spongy inside. It’s the perfect bread.

Loved you recipe. But I need some advice - the crust comes out really hard. Any suggestions ?

The 2:1 flour to water ratio does not work with the flour available where I live. To get a similar dough to begin, I use 4 cups flour and 1 1/2-1 3/4 cups water. Add the water until it looks somewhat like the initial dough in the video. Try it his way, if it doesn't come out cut back on your water.
