Pita Bread

1 package active dry yeast, or equivalent
1 1/4 cup warm water
3 cups flour
2 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 500.

Dissolve yeast in water. Stir in flour and salt.

Knead on a floured surface until smooth (about 5 minutes).

Divide into six balls and knead each until smooth and elastic.

Flatten each to 1/4" thick and 4-5 inches in diameter. Cover with a damp towel and let rise for 45 minutes.

Place upside down on a cookie sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes, until light brown.
