Prep Time7 mins
Cook Time1 hr 45 mins
Total Time1 hr 52 mins
Servings: 8 people
- 1 TBS active dry yeast or instant yeast
- 1 TBS honey
- 1 cup warm water
- 2 3/4 cup all-purpose white flour
- 1 TBS white sugar
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 Tbs olive oil
- Parchment paper
- 3 paper towels
Mix together warm (not hot) water, yeast, and honey, and let sit for a minute for yeast to foam
Stir together flour, sugar, salt, and then mix with yeast mixture and olive oil
Stir together with a wooden spoon
Knead for 5 minutes, either by hand or with a stand mixer and hook attachment. Do not short cut this time. Check the dough, it should be elastic, and not stick to your hands too much, and should form a nice ball. If this does not happen, knead a little longer until it reaches this stage.
Line a crock pot with parchment and place ball of dough in center
Put paper towels over the top, and put the lid, very slightly ajar over that, this will help absorb some of the moisture so the top of your bread is not mushy and wet while the bottom is crispy and hard.
Cook on high for an hour and a half, or until bottom is browned (You can just lift it out with the parchment to check how brown the bottom is)
Remove from crock pot, put on a baking tray, and into a preheated oven set to broil on high. Broil 2-3 minutes or until you reach the desired golden brown.
Allow yeast to activate and foam.
Dough consistency is important for getting the right crumb and rise. Be sure to knead for the appropriate time, and that the dough is elastic, so you can pull on it and it doesn't easily tear. But also not too sticky.
It should stick to your hands, but release cleanly.
Knead until you reach this stage.
