  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp active dry yeast
  • 1½ cups room temperature water

Combine everything in a bowl. No need to proof the yeast. Cover with plastic wrap or a kitchen towel. Let rise in a draft-free spot overnight or 8-10 hours. My brother lets his rise in the fridge. I put mine in the microwave.

Pre-heat oven to 450.

The dough will be very sticky. It’s easier to handle if you wet your hands. Pour the dough out onto a baking pan that you can cover, such as a dutch oven or clay pot with a lid. You can also use a regular cookie sheet and cover the dough with foil. You want it tight enough so the dough steams, but leave some room for the dough to rise a bit more.

Bake, covered for 30-40 minutes, depending on your oven. Uncover and finish baking for another 15-20 minutes.
