Not sure what you mean by "enzymes"... I use active dry yeast.

Here's an awesome and easy recipe:
All it takes is flour, active dry yeast, salt and water.
You'll also need a piece of parchment and a cast iron dutch oven with an oven-safe lid. (like in video) You can add herbs..spices...cheese...olives...or just make it "as is".

I know that some professional bakers work with things like ‘dough relaxers,’ which is somehow yeast that’s been cooked/deactivated already. I don’t know the details, but it will allow you to shape the dough much sooner than I’d you weren’t using that (like twenty minutes instead of an hour? two hours instead of overnight? again, I’m not really sure). However one relevant fact I do know, is that most bread is vegan! Flour (grains), water, and salt — and yeast if it’s not a sourdough bread — are the most traditional ingredients.

jwh is referencing enzymes and dough conditioners which can be either from plants or animals


Now conditioners can be animal sourced, like l- cysteine (feathers) and mono and di-glycerides

Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good

Not sure what enzymes you speak of to. But active dry yeast is a popular choice.
