Khachapuri Georgian Cheese Bread (sweetcsdesigns)

2/3 c warm water
1 t active dry yeast
1/4 t sugar
1 T olive oil
1 1/4 c flour
1 t kosher salt
2 1/2 c shredded Muenster cheese
1 1/4 c crumbled feta cheese
2 eggs (opt) OR 2 egg yolks
4 T unsalted butter, cubed

In a large bowl, add water, sugar and yeast. Let bloom until foamy and fragrant, about 10 min. Add flour, olive oil and salt to bowl and stir with wooden spoon until a soft, springy dough forms. Transfer dough to well greased bowl and let rise in a warm area for 1 hour. Preheat pizza stone in oven at 500 F (don’t add stone to a hot oven, let it come to temp in the oven so it doesn’t explode.) Generously flour a counter surface. Punch down dough and divide into 2 round balls. Roll out 1 ball onto floured surface into a large disc, about 1/4″ thick. Add 1/4 cheese mix to the center of the dough. Roll the sides to form a boat shape around the dough. Add another 1/4 cheese to the middle and place into oven. Bake 30 min or until cheese is bubbly and crust is a golden brown. Top with fresh egg and pats of butter when removing from oven. Repeat with second disc for second Khachapuri. Serve and enjoy!
