  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
  • 1-1/2 cups room temperature water


  • 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!!!
