Print Recipe


  • 3 cups of all purpose flour (I use organic as I prefer to make organic bread)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Instant yeast
  • 1 1/2 cups of room temperature water


  • In a large bowl, mix together flour, salt, and yeast
  • Add water and using spatula, mix together until combined
  • Cover with plastic foil and let it rise for 12-18 hours
  • After at least 12 hours, heat up the oven to 450F
  • When the oven has reached this temperature, place covered empty dutch oven into the oven and let it heat for half an hour
  • In the meantime, pour the dough onto a surface covered with flour
  • Using a vegetable scooper, turn the dough few times and form a ball
  • Place parchment paper onto your surface and then place your dough ball on top, cover with plastic foil and let it rest until the pot is hot
  • After the pot has been in the oven for half an hour, take it out and place the bread with parchment paper inside, cover with lid and bake for half an hour
  • After half an hour, take off the lid and bake for another 15-20 minutes
  • Remove from the oven and let it rest before cutting
