  1. In a large bowl add water, sugar, and yeast. Set aside until bubbly, about 10 minutes.

  2. Add in olive oil, Butcher’s Blend, rub, and flour and mix until a ball forms. Roll out the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 5-10 minutes until the dough is smooth and elastic.

  3. Place dough in a lightly oiled bowl and cover with a towel. Let rise in a warm area until doubled, 1-2 hours.

  4. Punch down on the dough then on a floured surface shape it into a round ball. Lay dough on a piece of parchment and cover it with a towel. Let rise again until doubled in size, 1-2 hours.

  5. Place the Dutch oven in your oven and set it to 450F to preheat. Once the dough is ready, remove the Dutch oven and lower the heat to 400F.

  6. Carefully place the dough ball with parchment paper into the Dutch oven. If desired, use a sharp knife to score the top of the bread.

  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes with the lid on, until the bread is golden and sounds hollow when tapped.

  8. Let cool completely on a wire rack before slicing.
