I loved this bread, the saffran doesn't show much maybe because I used the threads (?) and not the powder.
(from il Libro del Pane by Alessandra Meldolesi)
700 gr all purpose flour
150 gr shelled Pistachios Nuts
1 envelope Saffron
25 gr fresh yeast
1 pinch of sugar
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
14 gr salt
Dissolve the yeast in 1 dl water adding some water.
Mix flour, coarsely ground pistachios, yeast, 2,5 dl water, saffron and 2 TBS extra virgin olive oil, start kneading and after a while add the salt. Knead for about fifteen minutes. Let it rise until doubled. Shape, and proof for about three quarters of an hour. Meanwhile turn the oven on to 200° C . Add some steam and bake your bread for about 45 minutes if you made 2 loafes.
