This amazingly easy no-knead crusty Rosemary Garlic Artisan Bread will make you look like an artisan bread master. It’s fool-proof with only 6-ingredients!
Does the word artisan next bread freak you out? I was the same way until I made this bread. I’ve made this bread so many times. It came out the first time to the last. You can become a master of bread… at least Rosemary Garlic Artisan Bread. Seriously! If you give this recipe a try, you won’t regret it.
This artisan bread is so easy and comes out perfect every time. The rosemary and garlic are deliciously aromatic when baking and the sound its crust makes will give you the warm foodie chills.
I love how clean it is and it’s also vegan. There are only 6 ingredients in this bread. Here’s the ingredient line up:
- warm water
You can imagine how fast the dough comes together if there are only 6 ingredients and no kneading required. That’s my kind of artisan bread!

To get started, I put all the dry ingredients, rosemary, and garlic in a bowl. Add the water, then stir.
Once all the dry ingredients are well incorporated, it’s done. This only takes about 3-4 minutes from start to finish. Next, I cover the bowl with plastic wrap and set it on the counter where it can rest at room temperature for 6-12 hours. We keep our home between 70-72 degrees and I’ve found my artisan bread comes out the best after it has rested for 8-10 hours.
Below are pictures of what my dough looks like after I mix it, cover it, and after 10 hours of resting.
I like to mix my dough the night before, right before I head to bed, then bake it the next morning. If you’d like to enjoy this artisan bread right out of the oven for dinner then prep the dough early in the morning and bake right before dinner. I love this bread for the fact that I could prep the dough before heading to work then it would be ready to bake when I got home.
Once the dough has rested for 6-12 hours, I well-flour my working surface, pour the dough out and form it into a ball. You’ll want to make sure you use plenty of flour because this dough is sticky. I preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. and put my dutch oven right in to get hot.
After 20-30 minutes, I cut an “x” on top of the dough. It’s ready for the oven. I put the dough ball into my dutch oven with the lid on and slide it into the oven. You can find a similar dutch oven to the one I like to use here.
This artisan bread bakes covered for 25 minutes then uncovered for about 10-12 minutes. This helps the bread get that nice crust without being burnt or too brown Right out of the oven, this is how it looks (minus the rosemary sprig. That was just for color 😉 ).
Look how pretty it is and it tastes even better than it looks!
You will have everyone thinking you bought this from bread shop for $8 a loaf.
You will be known as a master of rosemary garlic artisan bread! 😉
One of the coolest things about this bread is how cheap it actually is to make. When I calculated my cost for the ingredients, a loaf was less than $0.25 to make because I grow my own rosemary.
Now that you’ve seen how EASY and doable this artisan bread is to make, are you going to try it? This bread pairs so nicely with any one of these soups:
