INGREDIENTS

Bread flour

Kosher Salt

Olive oil

Yeast

Water

DIRECTIONS

1.

For the No Knead Bread

1.

Start with bread flour. Add yeast and whisk until combined. Next add kosher salt along with room temperature water. Gently mix it all together until a rough ball forms. No need to knead!

400 g Bread flour

¼ tsp Yeast

1 ½ tsp Kosher Salt

1 ⅓ cups Water

2.

Cover and let sit at room temperature for 12-24 hours.

3.

Liberally dust your work surface with flour and turn out your dough onto the flour. There is no need to knead, just grab the corners and pulling them in towards the center until you have a heavily floured, smooth, and taut dough.

4.

Once you have a large, round, smooth surface, start pulling the dough in towards the bottom, shaping it into small mound. Place it on some parchment paper.

5.

Flour a clean kitchen towel and place on top of the bread and let sit for about 1-2 hours.

6.

Preheat oven as hot as it will get with a cast iron dutch oven inside of it for at least an hour.

7.

Cut excess parchment paper off around the bread and score the top with a knife.

8.

Drop the loaf directly into the cast iron dutch oven, and before covering it, liberally spritz with water.

9.

Place in oven and let it bake for 30 minutes, removing the lid and then spritzing again with water and then baking for 15 minutes again (with no lid) or until completely done.

10.

Let the bread cool and then slice into it. Serve and enjoy!
