Ingredients

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp yeast
  • 1 cup warm water

Instructions

  • Add the dry ingredients to your Instant Pot and stir to combine them. Pour the water over the flour mixture and stir just until there is no more wet flour. 
  • Cover the Instant Pot with a glass lid. Press the Yogurt button and adjust to LOW. Let the dough rise for 2 hours. Alternatively, you could let the dough rise on the counter for 4-5 hours.
  • Once the dough has risen for 2 hours, gently scrape the dough out onto a floured piece of parchment paper. Sprinkle some flour on top of the dough and then careful shape into a rectangle. DO NOT KNEAD. 
  • Use a pizza cutter and cut into 6 rolls. These are meant to be rustic looking, so don't worry about the appearance too much.
  • Let the rolls rest and rise for 30 more minutes in a warm place. At the halfway mark (15 minutes) place an oven-proof sauce pan filled halfway with water into the oven. Then turn the oven on to 500°. (Not a typo!)
  • Once the 30 minutes is up, bake the rolls in the oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
