  • 3 cups all-purpose or bread flour, more for dusting
  • ¼ teaspoon instant yeast
  • teaspoons salt
  • cups water


  • Mix the dough. In a large bowl, mix the flour with the yeast and salt. Add the water and stir until blended (the dough will be very sticky).
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let rest for 12 to 24 hours in a warm spot, about 70°.
  • Shape the dough. Place the dough on a lightly floured work surface and lightly sprinkle the top with flour. Fold the dough over on itself once or twice, cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rest for 15 minutes. Divide the dough into 4 pieces and shape each piece into a ball. Generously sprinkle a clean cotton towel with flour and cover the dough balls with it.
  • Let the dough rise for 2 hours.
