  • 2 cups warm water
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon yeast
  • 3 3/4 cups whole wheat flour


  • Mix together water, salt and yeast in large mixing bowl. Mix in flour until well combined. Cover and let sit out overnight.
  • The next day, place a dutch oven in oven and pre-heat oven to 450 degrees.Once heated, carefully remove dutch oven.
  • With floured hands, shape dough into circle. And drop into skillet. Bake covered for 30 minutes. Remove lid and bake for an additional 20 minutes.
  • Remove bread from dutch oven and let cool on wire rack for 10-15 minutes before serving.


  • You will know your bread is done cooking when it reaches a temperature on an instant read thermometer of 207-209 degrees. 
  • I use whole wheat flour for this recipe, but you can use half whole wheat and half all-purpose or whole white wheat flour as well. If you use all all-purpose flour you will need to use 4 cups instead of 3 3/4 cups.
