Turn dough out onto a well-floured surface. Divide dough in half; cover
half, and set aside.

Divide one portion of dough into 10 equal pieces; knead each piece 2
minutes or until smooth and elastic. Shape each piece into a ball, and
place seam side down on towel. Cover with another towel; place a damp towel
on top. Repeat process with remaining half of dough.

Let dough rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 1 to 1 1/2 hours or

sheets; do not stretch dough. Place oven rack 2 inches from bottom heating
element. Bake at 475°F for 4 to 6 minutes or until bottom is lightly
browned (it will puff, forming a pocket). Immediately turn oven to broil.
Broil 4 inches from broiler element 30 to 60 seconds or until lightly
browned (watch carefully to prevent overbrowning). Place on towels. When
