In a small bowl, mix the yeast and 3 tablespoons of water, set aside.
In a large bowl mix together the flour and salt. Add in the yeast mixture and water. Stir well to combine.
Cover the bowl with a tea towel and let the dough rise in a warm place for two hours. (I place my bowl in the microwave and close the door just to let it sit)
Place a baking sheet into the oven. Also place a roasting pan into the bottom of the oven to preheat.
Once the dough has been sitting for about 2 hours and almost doubled in size, turn the dough out onto a floured surface and cut in half.
