4 ingredient artisan bread

Make your own artisan bread at home with only 4 ingredients.

  • Total Time: 47 minute
  • Yield: 8 servings 1x



2 teaspoons active dry yeast

2 cups warm water (bathwater temperature)

2 teaspoons kosher salt

4 cups bread flour


In a large mixing bowl, add yeast and water and let sit for 3 minutes

Add flour and salt

Stir until combined, ensuring the flour is completely incorporated using your hands if necessary (you can knead it a little in the bowl right here, just to get the flour mixed in)

Cover with plastic wrap and let rest for 2 hours

Place a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet or stone

With floured hands, take the dough out of the bowl and shape into a ball – tuck the seams under the bread and place on the parchment paper

Let rest for another 30-40 minutes

Preheat the oven to 450°F

Make 2-3 criss cross slits on the top of the dough

Bake for 25 minutes or until the top is golden brown

Remove from oven and let cool before slicing


You can experiment with this recipe and use it for pizza dough, baguettes, and rolls.
