Homemade Pistolette Sandwich Rolls

After being on a roll here (haha!) lately to try and find the perfect-for-me roll that could serve as both a dinner roll and a sandwich roll I have finally found it! I have made this batch multiple times and this is now my go to sandwich roll. It's not hard at all and it makes a beautiful roll.

Do use bread flour though. I once accidentally grabbed the wrong canister and used regular all-purpose flour. The rolls were certainly still good, but they were more dense and not as light and fluffy as they were with the bread flour.

I know a lot of people don't like to keep multiple flours around, but sometimes the kind of flour really does make a difference in a recipe, and particularly in the crumb of a bread. I keep all purpose, self rising and bread flour out all the time, with wheat in the freezer, though you can certainly store all of them in the freezer if you don't happen to cook often with them.

These are great for a roll for dinner, to make sandwiches, and may also be shaped into a larger loaf, if you prefer. Here's how to make them.
