No-Knead Crusty Artisan Bread and Rolls
Enjoy the most delicious crusty artisan bread and rolls without paying outrageous bakery prices.
Serves: 1 loaf or 6 large sandwich size rolls
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour, (plus more for dusting)
  • 1½ cups luke-warm water
  • 1-1//2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 tsp yeast*
  • non-stick spray for pot
  • cornmeal for pot
  1. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, salt and yeast.
  2. Add the water and using a Danish whisk or wooden spoon stir together until the mixture resembles a shaggy dough.
  3. Cover dough with a plastic lid or plastic wrap. Don't put the lid on tightly, just set it over the bowl and let sit at room temperature for 8-18 hours. Dough will bubble up and rise.
  4. After dough is ready, preheat oven to 450°.
  5. Turn the dough onto a well-floured surface and with floured hands form the dough into a ball. Cover with a light towel and let the dough rest.
  6. Spray pan with non-stick spray and sprinkle with cornmeal.
  7. While dough is resting, put your dutch oven into the preheated oven for 30 minutes.
  8. After the 30 minutes are up carefully remove the dutch oven and with floured hands place the bread dough into it.
  9. Replace the cover and bake for 30 minutes covered. Then remove the cover and bake for an additional 15 minutes uncovered. Bread will be golden, crusty and delicious!

*I used a full teaspoon of yeast because I like the flavor in bread. ½ teaspoon will work as well if you do not!

I like salt a lot- I have added up to 3 teaspoons to this recipe and it's been great!
