Pane di Semola

Pane di Semola, also known as Semola Bread, is a traditional Italian bread made with semolina flour. It is characterized by its dense texture, hearty flavor, and crispy crust.


  • 500g semolina flour
  • 300g water
  • 8g salt
  • 2g yeast (fresh or dry)


  1. Mix the semolina flour, salt, and yeast in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Slowly add the water to the flour mixture, stirring until the dough comes together.
  3. Knead the dough on a floured surface for about 10-15 minutes or until it becomes smooth and elastic.
  4. Place the dough in a greased bowl and cover it with a damp cloth.
  5. Let the dough rise for about 1 hour or until it has doubled in size.
  6. Preheat the oven to 260°C (500°F)
  7. Once the dough has risen, shape it into a round loaf and place it on a baking sheet or a cast-iron skillet.
  8. Make a few slashes on the top of the loaf with a sharp knife to allow steam to escape.
  9. Place the loaf in the preheated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until it has a golden brown crust.
  10. Remove the bread from the oven and let it cool on a wire rack before slicing and serving.

Note: You can add herbs, seeds, or olives to personalize the bread. Enjoy your homemade Pane di Semola; it’s perfect for dipping in olive oil or toasting with some delicious toppings.
