Chewy crust, delicious additions, fragrant yeasty fresh bread, pass the butter please. With options to spare, get yourself organised for this recipe. Before you bake, try one of these flavourful variations, or come up with your own! **PIZZA CIABATTA LOAF**: When shaping the loaf, fold in a few chopped cherry tomatoes, kalamata olives, garlic and Italian (flat-leaf) parsley, and a good handful of grated Parmesan cheese. Dust the loaf in flour to move it onto the tray, then cover with more Parmesan. Make sure all of the inclusions are tucked inside the dough to anchor them for when you bake the loaf. You need to add an extra 5 minutes onto the baking time, as the extra ingredients create an even wetter mixture. **FIG, WALNUT AND OLIVE CIABATTA LOAF**: As above, fold in 50g each chopped dried figs, walnuts and kalamata olives.
