Ciabatta dough proofing -- recipe from The Breadbakers Apprentice book
Preheating the oven
Blurry... but two ciabatta loaves and two italian bread loaves in the oven. This isn't "fire in oven" cooking as with pizza.
3 ciabatta loaves cooling
The 2 Italian loaves cooling
The ciabatta slices have the denser texture, while the italian bread had a lot of very open air pockets that formed.
