  2. Place the bowl in the stand mixer and add the water. Stir it until it is all combined. It will look like cookie dough. It only takes a minute. Cover the bowl with a cloth and let sit 8-12 hours. We make ours at night and let it sit overnight on the counter.
  3. After it has risen for 8-12 hours. Flour your work surface and shape your dough into a ball. DON'T knead the dough. Once you have done this set it back in a floured bowl and cover with a cloth and let rise for another 30 minutes. After the 30 minutes Preheat the oven to 450F. If you want a round bread place an oven-safe pot in the oven to preheat also. After the oven is preheated. Which will take another 30 minutes.
    risen flour
  4. Remove the pot, place the dough in the pot.
    Put a cover on the pot. Don't preheat the cover.
    Bake the bread with a cover on it for 30 minutes.
    After 30 minutes if the bread is to your liking remove.
    If you want a thicker crust remove the lid and bake another 5-15 minutes
    Remove and let cool.

Recipe Notes

This recipe would make an awesome bread bowl too.

If you don't have 8-12 hours to let the bread rise. Use 1.5 teaspoons of yeast and let it rise for 5 hours
