No-Knead Crusty Bread

by 247tasty

My daughter loves all kinds of bread. She eats them for breakfast, snacks, even after a heavy meal! Finding this No-Knead Crusty Bread recipe is a huge help. I can’t say that I never buy bread from the store anymore, but I can easily whip up a loaf of bread at home if I am too lazy to go out! This four-ingredient crusty bread does not require a mixer. Just your hands and a Dutch oven.


1/2 tsp dry yeast (active dry or highly active dry work best)

1 1/2 c. lukewarm water

3 c. all-purpose flour

Special cookware needed: Dutch oven or any large oven-safe dish/bowl and lid Parchment paper

2-3 tsp kosher salt

How to make No-Knead Crusty Bread

Step 1: Place the flour, salt, and yeast in a large bowl. Mix well until blended.

Step 2: Pour in the water and mix with a wooden spoon until you have a shaggy but cohesive dough.

Step 3: Tightly cover the bowl using plastic wrap. Allow the dough to sit for about 8 to 24 hours at room temperature.

Step 4: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 450 degrees F. Pop the Dutch oven inside the oven for about 30 minutes, uncovered.

Step 5: In the meantime, knead the dough on a well-floured surface using your floured hands to shape it into a ball. Loosely tent the dough with plastic wrap and allow it to rest.

Step 6: Take the Dutch oven from the oven after 30 minutes. Place the bread on a sheet of parchment paper using your floured hands and place it in the Dutch oven.

Step 7: Put in the preheated oven and bake for about 30 minutes, covered. Uncover and continue to bake for another 7 to 15 minutes.

Step 8: Remove from the oven when done and transfer the bread on a cutting board. Slice the bread and serve. Enjoy!
