4 ingredients got together to make the most delicious collab of all time. 🔥

No Knead Dutch Oven Bread
3 cups AP flour
2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp Red Star Active Dry Yeast
1 1/2 cups warm (110-115) water

1. Whisk flour, yeast, and salt together in a bowl. Pour in the water, mixing to form a shaggy dough. 
2. Cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap, let it rise for 8-18 hours.
3. Preheat the oven to 450, put Dutch oven (with lid) in.
4. 🥊 down the dough. Flour a sheet of parchment paper, transfer dough to the paper and shape into a ball. Sprinkle top with more flour, let rest for 30 min.
5. Remove the Dutch oven, uncover dough and transfer. (With or without parchment paper.) cover the Dutch back up and back in the oven it goes.
6. Bake for 45 min covered, and an additional 10-15 min uncovered. 
7. Enjoy 😌
