1.        Combine 6 1/2 cups flour and 1 tbs. salt in large bowl. Stir down yeast mixture and add to flour with herb-water mixture and 1 cup potato. Mix until sticky dough forms. Knead on well-floured surface until dough is smooth and elastic, adding more flour if sticky, about 10 minutes.

2.        Oil large bowl. Add dough, turning to coat entire surface. Cover bowl with plastic. Let dough rise in warm draft-free area until doubled, 1 1/2 hours.

3.        Punch dough down. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth, about 2 minutes. Cover; let rest 10 minutes.

1.        Grease rimmed 9 x 13 inch jelly roll pan. Roll dough out on lightly floured surface to 9 x 13 inch rectangle. Transfer to prepared pan. Brush top with 2 tbs. oil. Sprinkle lightly with coarse salt and generously with pepper. Let rise in warm draft-fee area until almost doubled, 1 1/4 hours.

2.        Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bake until bread is brown and sounds hollow when tapped, about 40 minutes. Cool in pan 10 minutes. Transfer bread to rack and let cool completely.

  • When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead until smooth and elastic. Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl, and turn to coat with oil. Cover with a damp cloth, and let rise in a warm place for 20 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Punch dough down; place on greased baking sheet. Pat into a 1/2 inch thick rectangle. Brush top with olive oil. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and mozzarella cheese.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve warm
