Ny Tuscan saltless bread came out wuth a crust so hard I can hadly cut it and the iiii indide

inside is very dense. I have made this before succesfully. The only difference is that I used a machine to mix the dough instead of using hand kneading. I did follow the directios for machine kneading. What went wrong and how do I correct for it?

Possibly it has been over-kneaded, which you can do with a machine. Here’s a tutorial that might help. https://www.thekitchn.com/bread-baking-clinic-under-knea-157484

As for what to do with the current (very hard) loaf - add vinaigrette and vegetables to make a bread salad. Or some milk, eggs, fruit and sugar to bake up as a pudding.
