Prep Time 10 hours 35 minutes
Cook Time 55 minutes
Total Time 11 hours 30 minutes


  • 3 cups flour, all-purpose
  • 1.75 cups water, warm
  • 1.5 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp yeast


  1. Into a large bowl add dry ingredients and mix well. 

  2. Add warm water into bowl. Using a wooden spoon, stir to combine until dough is formed. It will be a sticky, wet substance. 

  3. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let rise. Allow to rest for a minimum 8 hours and maximum 15 hours.

  4. Preheat oven to 425 degrees and place dutch oven into oven to allow to warm. (Allow between 30-40 minutes to warm) 

  5. While oven is preheating, transfer dough from bowl to floured parchment paper. Cover with towel and allow to rise for 20-30 minutes.

  6. Once oven is preheated and dough is risen, carefully remove dutch oven from oven and place the dough along with the parchment paper into dutch oven. (having the parchment paper under the dough helps it cook without sticking to the bottom). 

  7. Loosely sprinkle a little more flour onto of the dough and place dutch oven into oven. Cover dutch oven and cook for 45 minutes. 

  8. Next remove cover from dutch oven and cook for an additional 10 minutes. 

  9. Once crispy and browned on top remove from oven. Allow to rest for 5-10 minutes. 

  10. Slice and ENJOY!

Recipe Notes

This is an incredibly sticky dough. When forming dough into a ball make sure that your hands are well floured, it will help make the process easier.
