Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it set out for 12-18 hours. I know it seems like a long time, but it will be worth it and the bread will be amazing!

Preheat the oven to 450 F.  Now typically, artisan bread calls for baking the bread in a cast iron pot with a lid (such as a Le Creuset).

I do not have one of these fancy shmancy pots (though I’d love one!), so I used an old crockpot liner. Please don’t ask why I have an old crockpot liner, that’s a whole other story. 🙂

Anyway, this worked great for baking this bread! I did remove the handle from the lid since it is plastic!! Now back to the recipe – place the pot and lid in the heated oven. Let sit in the oven for 30 minutes.

While the pot is heating through, take the super sticky dough out of the bowl and place on a very floured surface. Shape into a ball (do not knead it). Cover with the plastic wrap you were using earlier.

Once the pot is ready, remove it from the oven. Place the super sticky dough in the HOT, HOT pot. Please be very careful!!

Put the lid on top. (Since I am using the old crockpot liner without the handle on the lid, I put my lid on upside down for easier removal later.) Bake at 450 F for 30 minutes.

Your bread will look beautiful. Remove the lid and bake another 15 minutes.

Wala! Remove the bread from the pot and let cool on a wire rack. Your house should smell wonderful and you should feel very proud. What a creation. Enjoy!

  1. The size of the baking vessel is important for proper rise during baking. What was the size of the crock you used?? Diameter/height?????

  2. 5 stars
    I made just as the directions say. I baked in a large stoneware bowl with a lid. I did put the dough on parchment before baking. I was thrilled with the results. Basically no effort and great bread.

  3. Outstanding result. I proved mine inside a plastic carrier as I don’t have clingfilm. And the oven tripped and switched off for half an hour mid-way. It was STILL superb. Thanks for the new go-to. X

  4. Just found this recipe & keen to try it out! Do you use plain flour? Will also use my Crock Pot liner instead of my cast iron one for the nice oblong shape. By the way, FYI the word is “Voila” not “Wala”…it’s a French word meaning “there it is” or “there you go” ! Thanks for the recipe ?

  5. 5 stars
    Made your bread and it is delicious and so easy with easy cleanup! I did a double batch because I baked it in a large LeCreuset pot! Perfect! Thanks for posting this.

  6. 4 stars
    I made this with my Dutch oven and it was amazing. I added a little bit of olive oil and olives with herbs to make an Italian loaf. Fabulous. My family loves it. And my very Italian grandmother thought it was from the Italian bakery in town so that’s huge praise! Wonderful recipe. Can’t wait to try more!

  7. I followed the recipe exactly as written, using water at a temperature of 72 degrees, as that was the room temperature in my home. But I didn’t get a ball of dough after mixing; it was very watery and not formed at all. What did I do wrong? Should I have added more flour? The 3 cups that the recipe called for didn’t seem to be enough and their was no rise in the dough (and I used rapid rise yeast). Help please!

  8. Oh no, I haven’t had that issue. I would add 1/2 cup of more flour and see if that helps. Thank you!

  9. 5 stars
    Simple process and great results.
    I used a saucepan with 8.5″ diameter and 4.5″ deep with metal handles and a glass lid. The flour was strong white bread flour.
    Very happy with the outcome.
    Thank you for sharing.

  10. When I added the water, the dough seemed very dry, not wet and sticky the way you made it sound. I added a tad more water and I’m hoping the consistency changes after letting it rest.

  11. Let us know how it turns out. Mine was a little sticky so I think adding a bit more water was a great idea.

    Made the dough last night substituted garlic salt for regular salt added 2 tablespoons of Italian seasoning and 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese and 1 teaspoon minced garlic and 1 teaspoon onion powder…baked this morning in my Dutch oven on parchment paper…rubbed 1 tablespoon of olive oil on top before baking…perfect and yummy..a new favorite in our home..can’t wait to switch it up and try new seasonings..thank you
