  • Preheat oven to 450F. You will need to have 2 shelves in oven. Place 2 cups of hot boiled water on the deep cooking sheet. Place this cooking sheet on a lower level, inside your oven. This will make the bread crispy on the outside. Place the bread on the top level. Remove water from the oven after 10 minutes. Keep on baking bread for another 30 minutes or until golden crispy brown.
