3Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead for 5 minutes, or until smooth. Form dough into a 7 inch round. Place on prepared baking sheet (or you can use an 8- or 9-inch round cake pan, greased). Using a sharp knife, score a 1/2 inch deep cross on the top. This allows the loaf to expand.
