Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 1 day 37 minutes
Servings 2 Adults


  • 450 g bread flour
  • 10 g salt
  • 7 g instant yeast
  • 340-360 ml water


  • Place bread flour in a large mixing bowl. Dig 2 small holes on opposite corner, and place in yeast and salt.
  • Add water in gradually and mix to a dough. After adding in 340ml of water, if you need more, add in the water bit by bit, till it forms a dough (ie. not crumbly).
  • Cover bowl with clingwrap, leaving out a small hole for air circulation. Proof in room temperature for 2 hours before placing into the fridge for at least 24 hours (maximum 7 days).
  • After 24 hours, you can bring the dough (all or partially) out, and shape into a ball. You will need to dust the working area and your hands with flour, as the dough can be quite sticky.
  • Place dough onto lined baking tray. Cover the dough with a clean damp cloth or clingwrap, and proof for 30-60 mins.
  • Preheat oven to 225C. You can score the surface of the bread dough with a sharp knife and dust some bread flour if desired.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 20-30 mins, till the crust turns golden brown. Cool completely before slicing.
