No Knead Dutch Oven Crusty Bread

  • Author: Mavis Butterfield


Quick, simple and satisfying! This no knead Dutch oven crusty bread is a joy to make.


  • 3 cups flour {I use all-purpose white flour}
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon rapid rise yeast
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water


Stir the ingredients together, cover with plastic wrap and let rest at room temperature for 12-18 hours. Your dough should look like the picture above after 12-18 hours.

Now you are ready to form your loaf, but first put your pot and lid in the oven and pre-heat it to 450 degrees. Let it the pot heat up in the oven for about 30 minutes before taking it out.

While the pot is in the oven, shape the dough on a lightly floured surface just until it forms a sticky ball. Let it rest on the counter until the pot has been in the oven for 30 minutes. Remove pot from oven, place dough in pot and return lid.

Bake for 30 minutes. Remove the lid and bake for another 15 minutes. Remove bread from pot and let cool slightly before eating.
