     Crusty Bread

Category   Desserts - Breads
Sub Category   None
Servings   1 loaf

3 cups white unbleached flour
1 3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp yeast
1 1/2 cups water

Whisk the flour, salt and yeast together. Add the water. The dough will look like a shaggy mess.That's ok. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it set for 12 - 18 hours on the counter top. DO NOT REFRIGERATE. This is not optional. It takes that much time to proof the dough. The reason why you need a large bowl, is because the dough will start to rise.
After the 12-18 hours Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. As soon as it has heated to 450 degrees place your pot with the lid in the oven and pre-heat the pot for 30 minutes. Dump the dough out onto a HEAVILY floured surface. After you shape the dough cover it with the plastic wrap that was over the bowl.
Remove the pot from the oven and carefully pick up the ball of dough and drop it into the pot. You may want to flour your hands, because the dough is going to stick like crazy. Remember the pan is now 450 degrees hot! Be careful. Put the lid on the pot and return it to the oven for 30 minutes.Close the oven door and bake for 30 minutes. Remove the lid from the pot and continue to bake for another 15 minutes.
