BREAD Challenge #11 - Garlic Knots, Pitas and Pizza

Time for another Bread Challenge. I think Michelle mentioned how nice it was to be making the Master recipe and I have to agree. It has been a long time since I just made the basic dough from HBin5. And after all the blogs about bread I have read, the ideas were spinning in my head as to what I could do with the basic recipe. To me that is one of the great things about this bread baking group - it has really inspired me to think differently about the bread I bake and be willing to try baking lots of different ways (even if there is no recipe).

But to start off with I made the HBin5 Master Recipe and followed the directions to make garlic knots. The garlic knots were delicious with our black bean soup.


Next up - pita bread. I have made pitas before and really love how easy and yummy these are to make. These were a little hard to open up. But after prying them open, I stuffed them with chorizo, eggs and goat cheese. Yum.

Then onto some more bread making. I used the dough to make pizza, flatbread and more english muffins.


Loved getting back to basics.


Happy Baking and Eating!

  3. everything looks wonderful! I just made my dough last night and made a basic loaf for lunches. I can't wait to make the garlic knots and pita. I too agree with you and Michelle on how nice it is to make a basic dough this time. I really want to make english muffins though.
