Mix yeast and warm water and let sit for 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes, pour the yeast and water mixture in a mixing bowl with the sugar, salt and flour. Do not mix too long. Do not knead. Let rise until doubled.
After rising, split into 2 rounds and place on greased cookie sheet. Let rise again until doubled. Preheat oven to 425º F.
Brush tops of bread rounds with egg white or melted butter and then sprinkle with garlic salt.
Bake at 425º F for 10 minutes then reduce heat to 375º F and cook additional 15 minutes or until golden brown.
We like tearing chunks off the rounds and dipping in olive oil and seasonings. So delicious! Enjoy!
