Total Time: 120 mins

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup warm water (105 to 115 degrees F)
  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • ½ cup ale
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • ¼ cup stone ground mustard
  • ½ cup toasted almonds, ground
  • ½ cup smoked gouda cheese, shredded (2 ounces)
  • ¼ cup applewood smoked bacon or regular bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 teaspoons caraway seeds, toasted
  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • Nonstick cooking spray or olive oil
  • Cornmeal

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, stir together water and yeast. Let stand for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, heat and stir ale, sugar, butter, garlic salt, and mustard just until warm (120°F to 130°F) and butter almost melts. Stir ale mixture into yeast mixture until combined. Stir in flour, almonds, cheese, bacon, and caraway seeds (dough will be sticky). Lightly coat a medium bowl with cooking spray; transfer dough to the greased bowl. Lightly coat a sheet of plastic wrap with cooking spray; cover bowl with the greased plastic wrap and chill overnight.
  2. Using a dough scraper or spatula, carefully loosen dough from bowl and turn out onto a floured surface. Cover with the greased plastic wrap and let stand for 30 minutes.
  3. Pat dough into a greased 8x8x2-inch baking pan. Cover and let rise in a warm place until nearly double in size (about 1 hour).
  4. Preheat oven to 400°F. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from pan and cool on a wire rack. If desired, serve with additional stone ground mustard. Store in the refrigerator.
