Directions:
Preheat oven to 450*F.

In a large bowl, mix warm water and yeast until yeast has dissolved. Next add sugar, salt and flour. Knead ingredients together till itís a soft uniform dough.

Now place a thin towel over the bowl with the dough in it and let it rise in a warm place for 15-30 minutes.

Seperate dough into two, and begin shaping dough into long loaves, and place on a baking sheet.

Make slits with a knife and brush with egg white or olive oil. If you are garnishing with herbs or cheese, do so now.

Cover the dough with the towel once more and let rise 5 minutes or so (the longer the better).

Remove towel, and bake for 12-15 minutes or until tops are brown and crusty.

Have a wooden spoon ready to swat children and adults away until ready to serve.
