Open the top cover of the bread machine and lift the handle of the bread pan vertically, pulling upward to remove the pan from the machine. Place the bread pan on your work surface. Make sure the pan is clean and both kneading paddles are in place.
Add all of the ingredients to the pan in the order listed.
Put the bread pan back in the bread machine, pressing it down so that it clicks into place. Close the lid of the bread machine.
Plug the bread machine into an outlet and press the power button to turn the machine on.
Use the menu button to select program #6 for the dough cycle.
Press the start button to begin the dough making cycle.
Once the dough is done, the countdown timer on the front of the machine will read 0:00 and the machine will beep, indicating your bread is done. Open the machine at this time and use a pot holder to lift the pan out of the machine.
Gently lift the dough out of the machine and place it on a floured work surface. The dough will be quite sticky. Sprinkle a little more flour over the surface of the dough to prevent your fingers from sticking but do not knead more flour into the dough.
Divide the dough in half and place each half on a flour dusted sheet tray, shaping each dough piece into a rough rectangular shape.
Cover the tray loosely with plastic wrap and let sit for 45 minutes.
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F.
Unwrap the ciabatta dough tray and place it in the oven. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the ciabatta is a light golden brown. Remove tray from the oven and let cool.
Slice and enjoy!
