It's one of those easy recipes that truly turns out perfect. And you can add your own creativity with the addition of herbs and spices.
In a large bowl whisk together 3 cups of flour, 1/4 teaspoon yeast, 1 3/4 teaspoon salt. (I also added approximately 2 teaspoons chopped rosemary and 2 teaspoons of chopped lemon zest.) Add 1 3/4 cups of water. Stir until a dough forms.
Cover with plastic wrap and allow to sit overnight ~ 12-18 hours ~ in a warm spot (I used the top of my stove.) It will rise and bubbles will appear on the top.
In the morning, preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Once the temperature is reached, put your cast iron pan with a lid into the oven ~ I used my Le Creuset pot ~ for 30 minutes.
While the pot is heating, flour a surface, and form your dough into a ball, allow to rest.
At the end of the 30 minutes, CAREFULLY remove the lid and put the dough into the pot.
Cover and allow to bake for 30 minutes.
Remove the lid, and bake for an additional 15 minutes.
The result will be a crusty bread that is delicious to eat!
