Equipment

  • Dutch oven with lid
  • Stand mixer with a dough hook

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour, plus extra for dusting on the table
  • 3 tsp dried yeast
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 1 1/2 cups grilled artichokes (oil drianed)
  • 1 1/2 cups grated sharp cheddar
  • cornmeal for dusting

Instructions

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer with a dough hook, combine the flour, yeast and salt.
  • Add the warm water and mix on low for about 8 minutes.
  • Add the artickokes and cheese and mix just until cmbined.
  • Transfer the dough to a table surface dusted with flour to prevent sticking.
  • Knead the dough into a ball shape and transfer to a large bowl that has been rubbed with olive oil. Place the ball seam side down.
  • Cover with a towel and let rise to double in size, about 45-60 minutes depending on your environment.
  • Lay a clean towel on the table and sprinkle generously with some of the cornmeal.
  • Once the dough has risen dump it out onto your table again and flatten it down.
  • Knead the dough back into a ball shape and place it on the prepared towel. Sprinkle a little cornmeal on top of the dough also.
  • Cover and let rise until almost the size you'd want it to be when fully baked.
  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Close to when the dough is fully risen, place the dutch oven pot into the oven with the lid to get warm.
  • When th dough is at the corrct size, 6-8 inches in diameter, take the dutch oven pot out of the oven
  • Using a sharp knife, make two shallow cuts across the top of the loaf.
  • Carefully lift the dough from the towel to the pot and gently lower it in.
  • Replace the lid and place back into the oven.
  • Bake for 30 minutes and then take the lid of. Bake for another 30 minutes and the bread looks like it has formed a nice crust on top.
