active dry yeast
extra flour for shaping and handling dough
Combine the flour, salt, and yeast in a bowl and whisk well.
Add the hot water to the bowl and mix until fully absorbed. The dough will be sticky.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let proof at room temperature for at least 3-4 hours or until dough has doubled in size.
When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 450F
Place the Wonder Cooker in the oven for 30 mins.
While the Wonder Cooker heats up in the oven, turn out the dough onto parchment paper generously coated with flour (the dough will still be pretty sticky).
Roll and shape the dough into an oval loaf. Use a scraper to help fold over the dough and add more flour as needed. Handle the dough as minimally as possible.
Carefully remove the Wonder Cooker from the oven.
Place the loaf onto the Shallow Pan with the parchment paper and cover with the Casserole Pan to form the Dutch Oven
Place the Dutch Oven in the oven and bake at 450 F for 45 minutes.
Remove the Casserole Pan and bake at 460F for an additional 10-15 minutes or until crust has browned to your desire.
Cool before serving.
