Bread is a staple in any Italian home. But Capocollo Bread is… a real Special Treat!

For 1 Batch(es)

For the Bread:

  • 1 pound all purpose flour

  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

  1. Melt the yeast in 1 Oz milk.

  2. Mix all the ingredients for the dough by adding as much milk as needed to make the dough elastic and soft.
