Such an easy way to make homemade bread. Add any extra ingredients you like or omit everything and have just perfect bread.
In a large bowl, sift flour, salt and yeast. Add water and mix until a sticky mixture forms.
Add more water a Tablespoon at a time if the dough is too dry.
Cover bowl with plastic wrap and set on the counter for 12 hours or overnight.
Heat oven to 450°
Once the oven has reached 450° place the Dutch oven, with lid in the oven to heat for 30 minutes. While the pot is heating, dump the dough onto a floured cutting board. At this time, mix in any extra ingredients such as Kalamata olives and rosemary. Do not over mix the dough or it will be tough.
Once the pot is hot, remove from the oven and place the dough ball in the center of the hot pot. Cover with the lid and place in the oven for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes of cooking, remove the lid and continue cooking for another 15 minutes.
Remove from the oven and remove bread from the pot to prevent carry over cooking. Place on a cutting board or baking rack to cool.
Store in plastic wrap in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.
