In a large bowl, place flour, salt, yeast and mix together for just a moment to evenly distribute ingredients.
Make a small well in the middle of the flour and pour in room temperature water. Mix together with a wooden spoon or spatula, scraping sides. This will be a very wet and shaggy (not smooth) dough. This will only take about 1 minute to mix together.
Cover bowl and dough with a piece of plastic wrap. Set on counter for 12-18 hours.
When you are ready to bake, place your dutch oven and lid into a cold oven and turn the temp to 450 degrees. When the oven reaches 450 degrees the Dutch oven is preheated and ready for the dough.
On a flat surface, place about 1/4 cup of flour just to prevent sticking, pour out your dough onto the flour and fold the dough over on itself to form a ball.
I then place this ball onto a piece of parchment paper. Pick up both ends of the parchment paper and carefully place this into the hot Dutch oven. I like to make one, shallow slit down the middle of the dough, for a unique when it is baked. Place the lid back on top and put into the oven for 30 minutes.
At the 30 minute mark, remove the lid and place the Dutch oven back into the hot oven for 10 more minutes to form a nice golden and crunchy crust on your bread.
Remove from the oven and let cool. Enjoy!!!
