Pane con la pasta della pizza

What do you do if you have some pizza dough left? Well. If you want to make more pizza the day after, you can definitely do so. But if you're tired of pizza, just deflate the pizza dough, make it into bread shapes, let it rise again, and there you go! Wonderful bread the day after the pizza odissey :)
To have this type of bread loaf, shape the dough in elongated pieces about 3 inches in diameter, you choose the length. Before the shapes start rising again, cut them with two-three sharp and deep cuts on their surface, almost parallel to the bread. This will produce the nice lines on top of the bread crust. As usual, bake at 400F in an oven containing a pot of water to humidify and make a hard crust, for about 20-30 minutes, and once cooked, let cool on wire racks.
