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

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 at 500 degrees
for 10-15 minutes, until light brown.  These work well with whole-wheat
flour too.
