  • Dutch Oven
  • Large Bowl
  • Parchment Paper
  • Spatula
  • Plastic Wrap


  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp active dry yeast
  • 1 ½ cups warm water (about 115°F)


  • Add flour, salt and yeast to a large bowl. Stir to combine.
  • Next add the water and stir again. Dough will be sticky. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit for 12-18 hours.
  • Transfer dough to floured surface and fold a few times, until dough isn't sticky and forms a ball. Place on parchment paper seam side down, shape and flour.
  • Preheat the oven to 450°, place the dutch oven inside immediately and let it preheat as well. After 30 minutes, (optional: score bread with knife to create design) carefully transfer dough and parchment paper into the dutch oven. Bake covered for 30 minutes. And then uncover and bake for another 10-15 minutes. Until crust reaches desired doneness.
  • Let cool for 10 minutes and enjoy!
