No-Knead Crusty Bread

Great recipe of crusty bread. Great to eat off the oven with butter.


  1. 3 cups all-purpose flour
  2. 2 teaspoon kosher salt
  3. 1/2 teaspoon dry yeast (active dry or highly active dry work best)
  4. 1 1/2 cups lukewarm water
  5. Special cookware needed: Dutch oven or any large oven-safe dish/bowl and lid
  6. I used our turkey roaster (with lid) and placed a cake pan (2 inches high – 12/14 inch diameter). It worked perfectly


  1. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, salt and yeast.

  2. Add the water and stir using a wooden spoon until the mixture forms a shaggy but cohesive dough.

  3. Cover bowl tightly with plastic wrap. Let dough sit at room temperature for 8-24 hours. Dough will bubble up and rise.

  4. An hour and a half before you want to eat the bread, preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Place your Dutch oven, uncovered, into the preheated oven for 30 minutes.

  5. While your Dutch oven preheats, turn dough onto a well-floured surf
