As many as you think you'll need. Two is the MINIMUM required for the ritual blessing at the beginning of each Shabbat meal, whether or not they'll be needed for the meal. Note that all the baking is done ahead of time, well before Friday night, since there's no cooking or baking once Shabbat begins.
