This recipe from Tuscany uses unbleached plain flour & bread flour.
40g fresh yeast or 20g dried yeast
600ml warm water
15g salt
400g plain flour
475g strong bread flour


  1. If using dried yeast, leave it to dissolve in the warm water for about 10 minutes.
  2. Put the yeast water or water & fresh yeast in a large mixing bowl with the salt & gradually add the flour, stirring it in with a fork or spoon until the mixture is stiff enough to mix with your hands.

  4. Using extra flour, shape the dough into two round or oblong flat loaves.
