  • loaf pan
  • pie plate
  • glass bowl


  • 4 cups all-purpose flour can also use all or part white whole wheat flour
  • 1 ½ tsp salt noniodized or kosher
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp instant yeast
  • 2 cups warm water 110-120 degrees F
  • cooking spray for pan and your hands


  • Combine all the ingredients in a very large bowl. Mix to combine.
  • Add water and stir with a wooden spoon until a lumpy dough forms. There should not be any dry flour, but the dough will be lumpy and sticky.
  • Cover the bowl with a dish towel or greased plastic wrap and leave in a warm place to rise. Dough should double in size in about 1 to 1 ½ hours.
  • Prepare your baking dish by lightly greasing with cooking spray.
  • Uncover dough. Grease your hands with cooking spray. Gently shape the dough into the shape of your pan, being careful not to deflate the dough. Carefully transfer to prepared pan.
  • Cover dough in pan with towel or plastic wrap again. Let rise for 15-30 minutes, until looking bubbly or puffy.
  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Once heated, place prepared loaf into oven. Bake for 15 minutes. Then reduce temperature to 375°F, and bake until golden brown all around, about 15-25 minutes more.


You can bake this in a loaf pan, a pie pan, or a medium size glass bowl.  See links in equipment description.
