So you take your dough from the fridge. Preheat your oven to 450. Sprinkle your stone, or if you have a pizza peal then put your stone in the oven while it preheats and do everything else on your pizza peal, but since I don't have a pizza peal I just do everything directly on the stone. Sprinkle the stone with corn meal.
Grab a hunk about the size of a grapefruit.
Use your hands to form it into a ball. Rolling it under, turning a quarter turn each time. It should be smooth on the top. This whole process should take all of about 30 seconds.
Let the dough rest for about 30 minutes...about the time it takes for the oven to preheat.
When your oven is preheated sprinkle with flour.
Take a knife and cut slits into the dough. You can make what ever pattern you choose.
Sometimes this dough can be funny depending on how long it sits. What I have found though is that it all tastes the same may just not be as pretty. But 90% of the time they do turn out very pretty.
Cut into slices covered in butter garlic and herbs put under the broiler for couple minutes you won't even care what the loaf looks like...mmmmm.
there you have it now we have made 4 foccia breads(we had pizza another night) and two loaves of bread. The garlic bread was made from one loaf my family devoured the other the next day. This bread does not store long. Which is fine since it doesn't usually last long :) It does store well for 1-2 days but not air tight. I usually use paper bags.
