3 Cheese Semolina Bread Recipe

How To Make 3 Cheese Semolina Bread

Semolina bread has an intense flavor compared to the white bread. It's aromatic and whiney that you should try making with this semolina bread recipe.

Prep: 40 mins
Bloom and Rise: 3 hrs 15 mins
Cook: 35 mins
Total: 4 hrs 30 mins


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
  • 1⅛ cups water, warm but no more than 135 degrees F
  • 1 cup semolina flour, plus more for dusting
  • 1 cup pecorino cheese, or parmesan, manchego cheese, grated (avoid using any powdered variant)
  • 1 cup emmental cheese, or mozzarella, gruyere cheese, grated
  • 1 cup Asiago cheese, or provolone, monterey jack cheese, grated
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp active dry yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • cooking spray

To serve:

  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp strawberry jam, or any accompaniment of your choice


  1. In a bowl, dissolve the sugar and yeast in warm water.

  2. Set aside and allow the yeast to bloom at room temperature for roughly 15 minutes.

  3. In a large bowl, sift together both flour and salt. Make a well at the center, then pour in the bloomed yeast mixture. Fold until a dough is formed.

  4. Dust your working area with flour, then knead the dough for roughly 10 to 12 minutes until smooth and elastic.

  5. Add all your cheese to the dough and knead together until well combined.

  6. Grease a large mixing bowl with oil, then place your dough in it. Cover and set aside in a warm area. Allow the dough to rise for at least 2 hours. Note that it will only rise to nearly double in size. This is due to the amount of cheese that weighs down your dough.

  7. While waiting, grease a baking sheet with cooking spray, then line it with parchment paper. Preheat the oven to 380 degrees F.

  8. Dust your working area again with flour, place your risen dough, and shape it by tucking and stretching in until a smooth oblong is formed. Some of the cheese will fall off during this process, and it's alright. Just push these back in.

  9. Dust semolina over your lined baking sheet, and place the loaf on it. Cover and allow to rise again for an hour in a warm area.

  10. Bake bread in the oven for roughly 35 minutes or until golden brown.

  11. Allow the bread to cool down briefly at room temperature once baked.

  12. Portion and serve accordingly with honey and strawberry jam or any accompaniment of your choice.
