  • After it has doubled in size, turn the dough on to a well-floured counter or board. Quickly shape into a ball with the least amount of ‘working’ the dough that you can. Either flip it over and place it in a well-floured basket, or place it on parchment on a flat surface. Let rise until doubled again, about 3 hours.

  • Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. When it has reached temperature, preheat the Dutch oven for about 10 minutes. If you used a basket, flip your loaf out onto a piece of parchment. Take the Dutch oven out, remove the lid. Lift your loaf by the parchment paper corners and place in the Dutch oven. Make a quick cut or two deeply in the top, put the lid on and bake for 20 minutes.

  • Remove the lid, reduce the temperature to 375 and continue baking for another 20 minutes. You can check the internal temperature, looking for 190+, although it should be cooked through. Let cool outside the Dutch oven for about 10 minutes, slice and serve.
