Making sourdough bread

This was my third attempt. Getting closer!

Pyrex 2.5 quart glass bowl
50 g starter
350 g water
1 tsp salt
500 g flour

After folding and turning it a few times over the next few hours in the bowl, I just let it sit on the counter covered with a plate. After about a day the dough will rise up to the plate at which point I simply fold it one more time and them dump the dough (no banneton, shaping or scoring) into a Cuisinart 5.5 Quart Stainless Steel Multi-Purpose Pan (Dutch Oven) lined with parchment paper (with a sprinkle of flour to keep it from sticking). Then into the oven. Set temp to 450 degrees and bake for 55 minutes covered. Then take off the cover for another 20 minutes or until brown to your taste. Let sit on a rack to cool for a few hours before eating.
