Gyro Flatbread

Yummy and great for sandwiches!  Been looking for a good homemade version of this - reminds me of being in Jordan (okay, not as good as there, but still good).

1 T yeast
1 t sugar
1.5 c warm water
3 c flour
1.5 t salt

Mix yeast, sugar and 1/2 c water.  Let sit for 5-15 mins to activate the yeast.  In another bowl, add in flour and salt.  Pour yeast mixture into the middle of the flour and mix together, slowly adding in another 1 c water.  Keep stirring until mixed well.  Knead slightly if needed to keep it from being too sticky (but not for long)

Spray a bowl well and place dough into greased bowl (cover all of the dough in oil if desired).  Cover and let rise.  Once risen, knead dough on a floured surface for about 10 minutes, or until done.

Preheat oven to 500 degrees, and preheat cookie sheet or pizza tray (do not oil as it will only burn).  You can just put the sheets in a few minutes before it's ready - to get them to about 200 degrees at least, as preferred.  This is important though, to get it to cook properly.

Divide dough into 6 pieces.  Take a rolling pin and flatten each piece into a large circle or rectangle (whatever you like).  It should be about 1/4 inch thick if possible.  Remove heated trays from oven and spray with oil.  Place bread on the tray(s) and return to oven.  Cook for 5 minutes, then flip and cook an additional 2 minutes - should get cooked through.

Serve warm or keep in a ziploc bag within a day or two.
