My First Shot at Baking Bread
Proofing the yeast in a warm water with sugar. The foam means it's still alive.
Mix flour and water well, then incorporate salt and yeast.
Yeast doing its job.
Proofing dough in a frying pan. Final rise is to allow the gluten to relax enough for a big rise to happen in oven.
Flipped dough into a dutch oven. Cover and bake at ~450F.
