500 g bread flour

kosher salt

10 g kosher salt

instant yeast

2 tsp instant yeast

Combine the water and olive oil in a separate bowl.

water, lukewarm

400 g water, lukewarm

extra virgin olive oil + more for greasing

4.

With the food processor running, gradually add the oil/water mixture. Continue processing until a homogenous sticky dough forms.

5.

Transfer the dough into a well-oil bowl and cover. Refrigerate for 18-72 hours.

6.

Remove the dough from the refrigerator. Lift and fold the dough over itself 6 times in a circle, then cover the dough. Repeat this process every 15 minutes for 1 hour and 30 minutes.

7.

Grease a quarter sheet tray with olive oil.

8.

Add the dough to the tray and flip it over to coat it in oil. Using your hands, gently spread the dough into the sides and corners of the tray.

9.

Cover the tray with greased plastic wrap and allow to proof for 1-2 hours or until it has doubled in size. Towards the end of the proofing time, preheat the oven to 550°F.

10.

Pour two perpendicular lines of olive across the dough to form four equal portions of dough. Using a bench scraper or knife, cut the dough along these lines.

11.

Sprinkle the dough with flaky salt and place the tray into the pre-heated oven. Bake for 12-15 minutes, making sure to rotate the dough.

Carefully separate the dough into the four cut sections and allow them to cool on a rack for about 15 minutes.

13.

Cut each piece in half along the diagonal and then, place a cut along the longest side to create a pocket inside the bread.

14.

Fill the pocket with cheese, sausages, meatballs, and red sauce.
