Recipe steps:

  • Lightly sauté the garlic and onion in the oil; let cool to room temperature.

  • Punch the dough down on a lightly floured surface and knead briefly.
  • Shape the dough into a ball and place on a lightly oiled baking sheet or peel sprinkled with flour.
  • Cover with a towel and let rise until doubled, about 45 to 55 minutes.
  • Heat oven to 425°. If using a baking stone, turn the oven on 30 minutes before baking and sprinkle the stone with cornmeal just before sliding the loaf onto it.
  • Make 3 parallel slashes on the top of the loaf with a razor.
