In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the hook attachment, mix together the flour, water, salt, yeast, and honey.

Shape the dough into a circle and place it on a piece of parchment paper. Place the dough and the parchment paper into a Dutch oven. Score the top of the dough with a sharp knife.


Put the Dutch oven in the oven for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, take the lid off the Dutch oven and cook for another 30 minutes.
