Instructions
  1. Sprinkle yeast over warm water, add the pinch of sugar and stir gently. Allow the mixture to rest and foam for about 5 minutes.
  2. Melt the butter in a saucepan. Remove from heat and add the herbs, pepper flakes and garlic. Set Aside.
  3. Put flour in a large bowl. Add salt, pepper,yeast mixture, and butter mixture. If you have a stand mixer: Fit it with the dough hook and stir at low speed 10 - 12 minutes until dough cleans the sides of the bowl. If you do not have a stand mixer: Mix ingredients in bowl until combined. Turn onto floured surface and knead by hand about 15 minutes. Whichever method you use the dough should be smooth, supple yet firm.
  4. Place the dough in a large oiled bowl, turning to coat dough. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rest in a warm place until doubled in bulk, Approximately 1 hour.
  5. When doubled in size, place on a floured surface and knead by hand about 2 minutes. Form into a "Boule" shape (flat bottom rounded ball). Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  6. In a large Dutch Oven or Heavy Soup Pot, add 2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil to coat the bottom. Put the dough ball in the pan. Cut a fairly deep cross in the top using a sharp thin bladed knife. Drizzle with 2 -3 more Tablespoons of olive oil on top of dough. Sprinkle generously with Coarse Sea Salt and Red Pepper Flakes.
  7. Cover with a tight fitting lid and bake for 30 minutes. Reduce oven heat to 400 degrees, remove the lid and bake for an additional 15 - 20 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool until it can be easily removed for the pot. Bread can be served warm or cool and will keep up to 3 days if wrapped tightly. Provided it lasts that long!
