Components:

  • 3 and 1/4 cups (423g) bread flour (spoon & leveled), plus extra for arms and pan
  • 2 teaspoons prompt yeast
  • 2 teaspoons coarse salt (see observe)
  • 1 and 1/2 cups (360ml) cool water
  • non-obligatory: cornmeal for dusting pan

Technique:

  1. In a big un-greased mixing bowl, whisk the flour, yeast, and salt collectively. Pour within the cool water and gently combine along with a rubber spatula or wood spoon. The dough will appear dry and shaggy, however hold working it till all of the flour is moistened. If wanted, use your arms (as I do within the video tutorial above) to work the dough components collectively. The dough will likely be sticky. Form right into a ball within the bowl as greatest you may.
  2. Cowl the dough tightly with plastic wrap or aluminum foil and set it on the counter at room temperature (truthfully any regular room temperature is ok!). Permit to rise for 2-3 hours. The dough will nearly double in dimension, persist with the edges of the bowl, and have lots of air bubbles.
  3. *You’ll be able to proceed with step 4 instantly, however for the best possible taste and texture, I strongly suggest letting this risen dough relaxation within the fridge for a minimum of 12 hours and as much as 3 days.* I often let it relaxation within the fridge for about 18 hours. The dough will puff up throughout this time, however could start to deflate after 2 days. That’s fantastic and regular – nothing to fret about.
  4. Evenly mud a big nonstick baking sheet (with or with out rims and ensure it’s nonstick) with flour and/or cornmeal. Flip the chilly dough out onto a floured work floor. Utilizing a pointy knife or bench scraper, lower dough in half. Some air bubbles will deflate as you’re employed with it.

  6. Throughout this 45 minutes, preheat the oven to 475°F (246°C).
  7. When able to bake, utilizing a really sharp knife or bread lame (some even use kitchen shears), rating the bread loaves with 3 slashes, about 1/2 inch deep. (“Rating” = shallow lower.) If the formed loaves flattened out throughout the 45 minutes, use floured arms to slender them out alongside the edges once more.
  8. Non-obligatory for a barely crispier crust: After the oven is preheated and the dough is scored, place a shallow metallic or forged iron baking pan or skillet (I often use a metallic 9×13 baking pan) on the underside oven rack. Rigorously and rapidly pour 3-4 cups of boiling water into it. Place the scored dough/baking pan on the next rack and rapidly shut the oven, trapping the steam inside. The steam helps create a crispier crust.
  9. Place the formed and scored dough (on the flour/cornmeal-dusted pan) within the preheated oven on the middle rack. Bake for 20-25 minutes or till the crust is golden brown. Gently faucet the loaves– in the event that they sound hole, the bread is finished.
  10. Take away the bread from the oven and permit to chill for a minimum of 5 minutes earlier than slicing and serving.
    Retailer leftovers loosely lined at room temperature for as much as 5 days or within the fridge for as much as 10 days.
