Dutch Oven
Parchment Paper


  • 3 ½ cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoons Dry Active Yeast
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil , optional
  • 1 ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 2 cups Lukewarm Water


  • Combine all the ingredients in a large prep bowl with a wooden spoon or a silicone spatula. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap first then cover it with a kitchen towel.
  • Allow the dough to rise by placing the bowl in a warm insulated place for 16 to 18 hours.
  • Generously sprinkle flour on a clean surface and take the dough out on it. Incorporate a tablespoon of flour at a time until it forms a dough ball.
  • Transfer the dough into a prep bowl with a sprinkle of flour at the bottom for a second rise. Cover the dough with a kitchen towel and let it rest for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 450 F. Line the parchment paper in 3.5 quarter Dutch Oven.
  • Transfer the dough in the lined Dutch oven. If the dough is still too sticky to pick up, incorporate a tablespoon to two of flour and incorporate.
  • Cover the lid and bake it at 450 F for 35 minutes.
  • Uncover the lid after 35 minutes. Spray oil on top of the dough. Bake it uncovered for an additional 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Your No-Knead Bread! You Chef you!
  • Enjoy!


  • Heating the Dutch oven in a preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes before placing the dough helps the cooking process to be faster and the bread crust comes out beautifully crispy.
  • Lightly greasing the bottom of the Dutch oven with oil or butter helps with crispy and non-sticky bread. Also, I like to spray the top of the bread with oil for the last 15 to 20 minutes or uncovered baking. It creates a perfectly crispy and golden crust.
  • Transfer the bread to a bread bag or cover it with a kitchen towel until it cools down completely before slicing.
