Hot and fresh out of the oven. There is nothing like warm piece of herby parmesan bread dripping in velvety olive oil! Make it 2 pieces because it is just too good to only have one!
Combine the yeast and sugar in the bowl of a6-quart mixer. Pour in the water and set the bowl in a warm place for the yeast to bloom. (10-15 minutes)
Add flour, 2 TB of whole Good Fella and 1 TB salt. Place on the mixer with the dough hook.
Set speed to 1 and mix for 12 minutes.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees on the convection setting.
Increase speed to 2 and mix for 10 minutes. Dough should pull away from the sides when ready. It will feel a little tacky but will not stick to your hand.
Pour ½ extra virgin olive oil onto a ½ sheet tray and spread evenly.
Place the dough on the sheet tray and use your hands to spread to fit the tray.
Dimple the entire loaf with your fingers.
Place the loaf in a warm area to proof.
Once the loaf has doubled in size, top with ½ cup grated parmesan and 2 TB ground Good Fella.
Place in the oven for 10 minutes.
Rotate and bake for an additional 10 minutes or until golden brown, and hollow sounding when tapped.
Allow to cool for 30 minutes before cutting.
