No-Knead Crusty Artisan Bread

  • Author:
  • Total Time: 40 minutes


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoons dry yeast
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt and yeast. Add the water and stir using a wooden spoon until a “shaggy” mixture forms. Don’t over-work the dough. It will be slightly sticky.
  2. Transfer the dough ball to a large bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let dough sit at room temperature for 8-24 hours. Dough will bubble up and rise.
  3. When the dough is ready, place a Dutch oven into your oven and turn it on to 450°F. Let the Dutch oven warm-up for about 30 minutes.
  4. While your Dutch oven preheats, turn dough onto a well-floured surface and with floured hands, fold the edges in on itself several times. Turn the dough over and begin forming it into a nice ball with a smooth surface. 
  5. Place the dough onto a piece of parchment paper, then dust the top with flour and let rest for 15 minutes. 
  6. Use a sharp knife to score an “X” into the top of the dough.
  7. Carefully remove the heated Dutch oven and place the parchment paper and dough inside.
  8. Replace lid and bake for 30 minutes covered. After 30 minutes, carefully remove the lid and bake for 8-15 minutes more, uncovered.
  9. Carefully remove bread to a cutting board and let cool for 15-20 minutes. Cut using a good bread knife.
  10. P.S. Try not to eat the entire loaf!
