5 Ingredient No-Knead Olive Oil Skillet Bread (Vegan)

This 5 ingredient no-knead skillet bread is SO easy and delicious!  Make a warm & crusty loaf for breakfast, brunch, or dinner.

I am all about the easy no-knead breads!  I always bring one to a brunch or to a friends house for dinner.  Usually I go with my 4 Ingredient No Knead Bread recipe I make in our Dutch oven.  But if you don’t have a Dutch oven, this recipe is fantastic in a good ‘ol cast iron skillet!

Bread with pantry ingredients

This No Knead Skillet Bread Is:

  • Crusty
  • Soft in the center
  • Fragrant
  • Easy to bake
  • Made with pantry ingredients
  • Vegan

What I love about this bread is how quickly it comes together.  I usually make a bread with an overnight rise, and do a second rise in the morning.  But this no knead skillet bread is perfect to whip up same-day and doesn’t require much rising time.

How do I make No Knead Skillet Bread?

In a large bowl, add the water and dissolve the package of yeast into it.

Stir the salt and flour 1 cup at a time until the dough becomes loose and shaggy.

Cover the bowl with a tea towel, and allow to rise for 1 hour.

In a 10 or 12-inch cast iron (or oven-safe) skillet, pour about 1/4 cup of the olive oil in the bottom.

Remove the tea towel from the dough, and after flouring your hands, gently work the dough into a disc.  Make sure to cover the outside of the dough with flour as it will be sticky.  Place the dough in the skillet, re-cover with the tea towel, and allow dough to rise again for 30 more minutes.

Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Remove the tea towel from the dough, and drizzle the remaining olive oil over the top.  Score an X at the top to allow the steam to escape during cooking.

Place skillet in the oven, and bake for 40 minutes.

Carefully remove skillet from oven, and allow to cool before slicing.

Why Make My Own Bread?

Homemade bread may seem intimidating at first…. but once you make your own loaf, you will never go back to store bought!  Its surprisingly easy, tastes incredible, and you know exactly what goes into it. No preservatives or chemicals you can’t pronounce.

I also love this easy bread because I always have the ingredients in my pantry: flour, salt, yeast, and olive oil.  I can start the dough when I wake up and have it baked and on the table by breakfast!
