This easy Dutch oven bread is a no-knead recipe, meaning you can simply stir together the ingredients, let the dough rise, and then bake it! It’s so simple but the results are delicious!


Units Scale
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, yeast, and salt.
  2. Add the water and stir until combined. (You can just stir it using a large wooden spoon. You don’t need to knead the dough.)
  3. Cover with a towel and allow the dough to rise for 7-8 hours or overnight.
  4. When you’re ready to bake the bread, move the oven rack to a lower position in order to allow a Dutch oven pot to fit in the middle of the oven.
  5. Place the Dutch oven with lid in the oven and preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  6. Lightly dust your hands with flour and transfer the dough to a square of parchment paper.
  7. Using oven mitts, carefully remove the preheated Dutch oven, take off the lid, and lower the parchment paper with the dough into the pot.
  8. Cover with the lid and transfer the pot into the oven. Cover and bake for 30 minutes.
  9. Remove the Dutch oven lid and continue to bake for 15 minutes or until the bread has a golden brown crust.
  10. Let the bread cool, then slice and enjoy.
