    2. Line slow cooker with parchment paper.
    3. In a large bowl, combine yeast and sugar. Add water and stir until combined. Add flours, oil, salt and stir until combined and a shaggy dough begins to form.
    4. On a lightly floured surface, knead dough until it becomes smooth and soft, about 5 minutes. Roll dough into a ball, then place in slow cooker. Cook on high until golden on the bottom and cooked through, about 2 hours. (The internal temperature should be about 200º F, but bread will not be golden on top.) Carefully remove bread from slow cooker.
    5. To crisp up the crust, transfer to a baking sheet and broil until golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Let cool for at least 20 minutes.
    6. Slice and serve warm or at room temperature.
