Peasant Bread

2 cups warm water 
2 tsp yeast
1 Tbs sugar
1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
5 cups flour
1 tsp Italian seasoning

Add yeast, sugar, and salt to warm water and let sit for 1-2 minutes.  Place flour in large mixing bowl; stir in yeast mixture; dough will be sticky. Place dough into a greased bowl and cover bowl; let rise for 45 min. Stir dough down then divide in half and place each half in a mound on greased baking stones. Let dough rise again for 20-25 min. Bake in a preheated 425 degree oven for 10 min. Reduce heat to 375 degrees and bake 15-20 min more. Loaves will be flat, crusty, chewy - enjoy!
