  1. I use pizza dough to make great, hearty baguettes for my bruschetta and grilled vegetable sandwiches. To yield two 9-inch baguettes, follow the recipe for pizza dough up to the point at which the dough has risen for an hour, to double its original size.

  2. Transfer the dough to a work surface taht has been dusted with cornmeal. Knead the dough for about 5 minutes, until elastic, repeatedly pushing it away from you with the palm of your hand, then folding it over toward you, and pushing it away again in a wavelike motion.

  3. Cut the dough in half. With the palm of your hands, roll each piece into a narrow rope 9 inches long. Spray a cookie sheet 3 times with light vegetable oil cooking spray and place the dough on the sheet.

  4. Cover with a towel and put the cookie sheet in a warm spot until the halves of dough double in size, 30 to 40 minutes.

  5. Toward the end of this second rise, preheat the oven to 375o.

  6. With a razor blade, make 3 diagonal slashes on the top of each baguette. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of all-purpose flour over each. Bake for about 25 minutes, until the baguettes are brown and sound hollow when tapped.

  7. Transfer the baguettes to a wire rack to cool.
