- At this point you can also place it in your fridge over night and continue it in the morning.
- Preheat Dutch Oven in your oven to 500.
- Flip bread out of bowel into Dutch over place lid on and place in oven for 20 min (nice trick here is just before closing the lid add a quick spritz from a water sprayer it will improve the spring of the dough)

- Let cool for 30 min before cutting or if you can wait let cool several hours. ( I rarely do) Enjoy
