Artisan Bread



  1. Prepare the Dough
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt.
    • In a separate container, dissolve the yeast in warm water and let it sit for 5 minutes until it becomes frothy.
    • Pour the yeast mixture into the flour mixture and stir until a shaggy dough forms.
  2. First Rest
    • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a clean kitchen towel.
    • Allow the dough to rest at room temperature for 2 hours. During this time, the dough will rise and double in size.
  3. Preheat the Oven
    • Preheat your oven to 450°F (230°C).
    • Place a Dutch oven or an oven-safe pot with a lid inside the oven while it preheats. This will ensure that the pot is hot when you place the dough in it.
  4. Shape the Dough
    • Once the dough has completed its first rise, carefully transfer it to a well-floured surface.
    • Shape the dough into a round ball by folding the edges towards the center, creating tension on the surface.
  5. Baking
    • Carefully remove the preheated pot from the oven.
    • Gently place the shaped dough into the hot pot.
    • Cover the pot with the lid and place it back into the oven
  6. Bake with the Lid On
    • Bake the bread with the lid on for 30 minutes. This will create steam inside the pot, which helps develop a crisp crust.
  7. Bake with the Lid Off
    • After 30 minutes, remove the lid from the pot.
    • Continue baking for an additional 5-10 minutes or until the bread is golden brown and has a crusty exterior.
