Greek Peasant Bread

This bread is hearty and so simple to make!  It comes out a thick mound and is perfect to go with soup.   

2 and 1/4 tsp yeast
2 cups warm water
1 TBSP sugar
4 cups flour (I use 1/2 white and 1/2 wheat)
1 tsp salt

Place yeast, water and sugar in a large bowl and stir until dissolved.  Slowly add flour until fullly blended.  Do not knead!  Cover and let rise one hour.  Pick up dough, split into two rounds and place on a well greased cookie sheet or baking paper.  Lightly flour top of rounds, cover and rise for one more hour.  Bake at 425 for 10 minutes and reduce to 375 for 15 minutes more.  Serve warm.
