- In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the dough hook, combine 4 cups of the flour, garlic, olive oil, crushed red pepper, and salt. Rotate on low speed until combined.
- Slowly add the yeast mixture and mix on low until incorporated – about 1 minute; increase the speed to medium low and beat for about 5 minutes, adding more flour, about 1/4 cup at a time, until the dough is elastic and pulls away from the sides of the bowl
- Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 1 minute.
- Form into a ball and dust lightly with flour; sprinkle a little flour into a bowl and transfer the dough to the bowl.

- Line a sheet bread pan with parchment and sprinkle with coarse salt and corn meal.
- Roll each ball into a log with tapered ends, about the length of the pan, and place on the sheet pan with parchment. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 10 minutes.
