Dutch Oven Crusty Bread

I have made this recipe before and it is also from

Another Super easy bread recipe- though you have to plan this one out in advance- the dough needs 12-18 hours to rise. Since you use Rapid rise yeast it's not as technical. 

Only 4 ingredients- Flour, Rapid Rise Yeast, Salt and Water. So we can really call this only 2 ingredients since most people have Salt and Water on hand. 

After rising- it looked like this in less than 12 hours so I imagine I could have made it at that point. 

3 cups flour  
1 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon rapid rise yeast
1 1/2 cups warm water

Stir the ingredients together, cover with plastic wrap and let rest at room temperature for 12-18 hours. Your dough should look like the picture above after 12-18 hours.
Now you are ready to form your loaf, but first put your pot and lid in the oven and pre-heat it to 450 degrees. Let it the pot heat up in the oven for about 30 minutes before taking it out.
While the pot is in the oven, shape the dough on a lightly floured surface just until it forms a sticky ball. Let it rest on the counter until the pot has been in the oven for 30 minutes. Remove pot from oven, place dough in pot and return lid.
Bake for 30 minutes. Remove the lid and bake for another 15 minutes. Remove bread from pot and let cool slightly before eating.
