Arizona Bread Company Ciabatta Bread



  • 1 scant cup unbleached white flour
  • 1 teaspoon whole-wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons rye flour
  • 1/2 cup leaven (sourdough starter)
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon yeast


  1. In a bowl or Kitchen Aid, mix together water and leaven until well combined.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and continue kneading/mixing until a soft ball is formed. (The nature of this dough is a little runny.)
  3. Let the dough rise for one hour and 20 minutes.
  4. On a floured surface cut the dough in half and gently shape each half into a long rectangle. Do not overwork the dough as that will break down the air bubbles inside the loaf! Lightly flour the loaf and place on a floured baking sheet.
  5. Let dough rise again before baking. Bake at 460 degrees F for 20 to 25 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
