2 tablespoons canola oil
1 teaspoon salt
2 to 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Punch dough down; let rest for 10 minutes. Shape into a ball. Place on a greased baking sheet sprinkled with cornmeal. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
Beat egg white and cold water; brush over dough. sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan to cool on a wire rack. Makes 1 loaf (16 slices).
