And this method gives you a nice loaf of bread that you can eat the same day.
1 cup lukewarm water
2 1/4 teaspoons yeast (one package)
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup semolina flour
2 cups bread flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
Put the first 4 items in the bowl of your stand mixer, stir, and let it sit for ten minutes, until it's foamy.
Add the flour, salt and olive oil, and first mix, then knead on medium speed until elastic.
Form into a ball, drizzle with a little olive oil, put it back into the bowl (or another clean bowl. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and let it rest until it has doubled in size, about an hour.
When it has doubled, take it out of the bowl form it into a nice tight ball. Sprinkle some cornmeal on the bottom of your dutch oven (I used a 5 1/2-quart).
Put the ball into the pot:
Isn't it pretty?
