I have been practicing making bread. The first time it turned out perfectly. After that...

I mix the bread (1 cup lukewarm water, 1 1/2 tsp active yeast, 1 tsp salt, 10 oz bread flour) until combined. Let rise for 2 hours covered with a towel. Remove from the bowl, shape into round, and let rise 1 hour. Bake at 450.

In that second rise, the bread is spreading out until it's about an inch high. The first time I made it, it crept out to the sides but didn't flatten as much as it is now.

Advice?
