Can I make sourdough using the Pizza Stone & Steamed Oven Method?
If you do not have a suitable pot, it is also possible to use a pizza stone and steamed oven method.
Preheat the pizza stone in the oven at 230°C (450°F) and place an oven tray in the oven below the pizza stone where it will not interfere with the bread.
When ready for baking, the ball of dough can be placed directly on the stone. This can be done by dusting the top of the dough ball with flour and tipping the dough ball with the flour side facing downwards, onto the pizza stone before removing the baking paper from the top.
Pour a cup of hot water into the baking tray and close the oven immediately.
Bake for about 40 minutes (the bread is ready if it sounds hollow when you tap the top).
