Mix it up


1. In a large mixing bowl, add flour, salt, sourdough starter, and the water yeast mixture.

Bulk Rise


Cover with an airtight lid or plastic wrap and place at room temperature for 2- 12 hours. Optional step: to reduce the risk of over proofing the dough, place it in the fridge after it has sat out at room temperature for about 12 hours.

Preheat Oven & 2nd Rise


As it preheating, take your dough and plop it onto a piece of parchment paper. Use your hands to shape the dough. Cover it with a tea towel and allow it to rise again for one hour, also known as the second proof.



Place into the hot dutch oven, cover it with a lid and bake for 25 minutes. Remove the lid and finish baking for about 25-30 minutes or until the crust is deep golden brown.
