With only 4 ingredients, and ready in 2 hours, this Rustic Bread is proofed in the Instant Pot and so easy to make! You won't believe how soft the crumb, yet how crunchy the crust is.
In a liquid measuring cup, add 1 ¾ cups of water. The cup of water should be room temperature. Sprinkle the yeast on top of the water and let it sit for 3-4 minutes or until it is foamy.
Add the flour and salt to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook attachment or a large mixing bowl.
Pour the yeast mixture onto the dry ingredients. Turn the mixer on low speed and mix for 3-4 minutes or until the mixture forms a dough ball and comes away from the sides of the bowl.
Grease the inner pot of the Instant Pot with olive oil. Put the dough ball into the Instant Pot. Close the lid and press the yogurt button. Set the cooking time to 1 hour.
