I decided to give my dutch oven a rest, and test out my Romertopf Clay Pot as a vessel to bake sourdough in.  And the results?  Absolutely delicious, warm and chewy sourdough with a crunchy crust.  So basically… perfect consistency!  The texture and crumb was exactly the same as when I bake in my Dutch Oven.

How Do I Make Sourdough In a Clay Pot Roaster?

  1. The previous night, add the sourdough starter and water to a large mixing bowl.  Add in the salt and the flour one cup at a time, stirring frequently.  The dough should be shaggy when finished.  Cover with a tea towel and allow dough to rise for 8-18 hours.
  2. Transfer the dough to a floured  bamboo proofing bowl or to a glass bowl, and lightly dust with flour.  Allow dough to rest for another hour.
  3. Fill the sink with lukewarm water.  Submerge clay pot, and soak for 15 minutes.  After 15 minutes, remove from water, dry off, and place in room temprature oven.
  4. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees with the clay pot inside.
  5. Once oven reaches temprature, remove the clay pot from the oven, add parchment paper to the bottom (optional) and add the dough to the pot, and place back in the oven with the top on for 30 minutes.
  6. Carefully remove the clay pot lid, and allow the bread to bake for another 10 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven, place the bread on a clean surface to cool, and wait 15 minutes before slicing!
