In a large bowl, combine 2 pounds of flour, three packets of yeast and three teaspoons of salt. Pour in 750 ml of hot tap water and mix well. Cover the bowl loosely and let it stand over night.
When you are ready to bake, place a large baking dish in the bottom of the oven and set it to preheat to 230 degrees. Decant the dough onto a floured surface and shape into loaves. Sprinkle a generous coating of flour onto each loaf and allow them to prove for 30 mins while the oven heats.
Place the loaves onto a silicone net to bake, and slash the tops with a bread knife.
As the loaves go into the oven, pour a cup of hot tap water into the hot baking dish at the bottom of the oven to make steam.
Bake for 30 mins.
