In this video, you’ll see how to bake homemade rustic Italian bread. This yeast bread is made with a combination of bread flour and cornmeal. It’s super easy. You’ll knead the dough until it’s nice and elastic, let it rise, and then proof it until it doubles in size. Then bake it with a pan of water in the oven, which will give the bread a beautiful light-brown crust. Watch the video, then get the recipe for Chef John's Rustic Italian Corn Bread.
