Dutch Oven Crusty Artisan Bread

Robyn0220 Starfire


I've had this recipe for a long time. I got it out of some old cookbook. I love this because there is absolutely no kneading! And it turns out a great crusty bread. Suitable for pairing with soups and stews or just dipping in some spiced up olive oil! Also I have found that this bread lends itself well to adding different spices and ingredients per your taste.

How to Make Dutch Oven Crusty Artisan Bread


  1. Stir dry ingredients together.
  2. Add water.
  3. Cover with plastic and let sit 2 hours up to 14 hours. It will be ready to bake at 2 hours but you can let it sit up to 14 hours for your convenience.
  4. Turn out onto a floured surface and form into a ball.(be sure and coat your hands with flour as the dough is sticky) Cover once again in plastic and let rest. While this rest preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Once your oven is ready then preheat your dutch oven for 30 minutes.
  5. Place dough into the dutch oven and cover.(I usually grease mine with ghee) Bake 30 minutes. Remove the cover and bake an additional 10-15 minutes.
