Dutch Oven Sundried Tomato Mozzarella Bread

Updated: May 2, 2020

This recipe was adapted from a Buzzfeed Tasty recipe.


3.5 cups bread flour

1 cup shredded mozzarella

1 cup sundried tomato

1 teaspoon kosher salt

2 cups warm water

1 packet yeast

1 teaspoon granulated sugar

1 tablespoon olive oil


1. In a large bowl, combine the bread flour, mozzarella, sundried tomatoes, and salt. Mix well.

2. In a separate large bowl, combine the warm water, yeast, and sugar. Pour the flour mixture on top of the water and use a silicone spatula to stir until the dough comes together.

3. With the spatula, fold the dough around the edges of the bowl toward the center, rotating the bowl each time and folding a total of 8 times. Cover with a kitchen towel and let rest in a warm place for 60 minutes, or until almost double in size.

4. Using the spatula, fold the dough toward the center again 8 more times. Cover with the towel and let rest for 30 minutes.

5. Add the Dutch oven and lid to the oven and preheat to 450F for 30 minutes.

6. Lightly flour a clean work surface and your hands. Carefully peel the dough out of the bowl and onto the floured surface. Sprinkle a little flour over the top. Fold the edges of the dough towards the center 8 times, then flip over the dough and transfer to a piece of parchment paper.

7. Brush the top of the dough with the olive oil.

8. Carefully remove the Dutch oven from the oven and use the parchment to lift the bread into the pot. Cover with the lid and bake for 30 minutes, then remove the lid and bake for 16-20 minutes, until the bread is golden brown.

9. Carefully slide the bread out of the pot and onto a wire rack. Remove the parchment paper and let the bread cool for at least 1 hour before slicing.
