Make sure not to scoop right from the container, this will compact the flour & be too much. Scoop with a spoon into your measuring container for more accurate measuring.
You want your dutch oven to be hot before you add the bread dough to it. Once the oven is preheated I personally like to wait an additional 10 minutes to ensure the dutch oven is hot enough before moving on to the next step.
I like to dust mine with a little bit of cornmeal to give it a nice crunch on the bottom.
I like to make this recipe ahead of time & then once it’s cooled I wrap it up in foil to be reheated at a later time at 300 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes right on the oven rack (no foil).
