I want to bake bread in a small flower pot. Can anyone share info on a food safe method of doing this?

Take a brand spankin new clay unglazed flower pot. Try to get one without a hole in the bottom. Wash it with some mild bleach solution and let it dry for a few days. (Plug the hole with a wad of aluminum foil) lightly grease the inside of the pot and add your dough to rise. put it in the oven when it is about half warmed up and bake. Don't heat or cool the pot too fast or it will shatter/break. Heck, I even knew a woman who baked bread in an old coffee can. Now why anyone would want to is beyond me. I personally like wood fired brick oven boules, but that is a little hard to find in the bakery section of the grocery mart.

I don't know much about baking bread, but I'd be a little careful about using just any old clay flower pot to bake it in. Some of the glazes used on pottery in the past have been known to contain lead. Especially the imported stuff.

Some of the Asian restaurants here serve dishes in clay pots. There has got to be a way. I wonder if there are special coatings on the pots, or if it matters...
