Ciabatta bread is an Italian white bread made with wheat flour (white or whole wheat flour) and yeast. Although there are various variations from different regions in Italy, the most popular variety in the United States is a longer, flatter, dense bread with a crisp crust and a inner porous texture.
It is widely used for sandwiches. Toasted sandwiches made from small loaves of ciabatta are known as Panini.
The bread is made from a very wet dough, often requiring a bread machine. Variations include loaves made with milk, olive oil, basil and other herbs.
