Step# 4

Step# 5
Unwrap the dough and use lightly dusted hands to stretch the edge of the dough across the center and toward the opposite side by reaching down one side to the bowl’s bottom. Repeat folding and turning while turning the bowl at 90 degrees. For 8 to 10 rotations, move in a circle around the dough until it starts to keep its shape. On a board that has been lightly sprinkled with flour, roll out the dough, seam side down. Cut out a loaf.
