Ingredients

    *Flour, white, 5 cup
    Water, tap, 1.75 cup (8 fl oz)
    Yeast, bakers, .25 ounce
    Salt, 1.5 tsp
    Olive Oil, 2 tbsp

    ***topping of your choice (I used a mixture of coarse Kosher salt, coarsely-ground pepper, and chopped fennel seed, as suggested by the original recipe

    ***topping not calculated in nutritional value.

Directions

Method:

1.Combine the flour, yeast, and salt in the bowl of a large food processor. Pulse a few times to combine.
2.Combine the water and olive oil in a liquid measuring cup. With the processor running, add the liquid to the dry ingredients in a steady stream.
3.Process until the dough is smooth and elastic, about 90 seconds.
4.Place the dough in a lightly oiled container. Cover the container and let the dough ferment at room temperature until doubled in volume, about 1.5 – 2 hours.
5.Preheat the oven to 350F. A baking stone and steam are not needed.
6.Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
7.Divide the dough into four equal pieces. The steps that follow will be repeated for each of the four pieces. Keep the pieces you’re not working with covered.
8.On a floured counter, roll the dough out into a rectangle about 12 x 8 inches. The exact dimensions are not critical.
9.Cut the dough into 16 strips of equal width. A pizza cutter works very well for this.
10.Fold each strip over on itself (according to Baking Illustrated, this makes it stronger). On an unfloured surface, roll the strip into a long snake. Make it a bit longer than the length of your baking sheet, to allow for spring-back.
11.Place the snakes evenly spaced across the width of the parchment-lined baking sheet.
12.Lightly spray or brush the grissini with olive oil and sprinkle on the topping.
13.Bake at 350F for 25 – 30 minutes, until golden brown.
14.Cool on a wire rack.
