GELOR HATZ (Pocket bread)

Armenian pocket bread!


7 cups flour
2 cups warm water
1 - 2 tsp. salt
1 yeast cake
* cup warm water
1 tsp. sugar
1 tbsp. salad oil 

Dissolve yeast in warm water and add 1 teaspoon sugar. Set aside for 10 minutes. Put warm water in a large pan. Add yeast and salt. Add
flour gradually, mixing by spoon or hand until all flour is used. Knead it very well. Add oil and knead until dough is silky, but stiff. You need to
add more flour occasionally. Cover and let rise until double in size. Make 12 balls of dough. Place them on a cloth 2" apart. Let rise about 1
hour, covered. Then roll out evenly about 8" in diameter. Arrange on cloth and cover with another cloth. Wait one hour. Turn your broiler on
high heat for 5 minutes Warm your aluminum tray without removing the tray out of the oven. Pull the rack out partially and place rolled out
dough, two at a time, about 5 - 6 inches from the heat. Broil two minutes until light brown. Leave oven door ajar. 

Turn over and broil another 1 or 2 minutes. Remove and place in a covered roasting pan. Keep covered and repeat procedure as above. Cool
bread by storing it warm and allowing steam to release of its own accord. If you don't do this, the bread will be hard. 

When you place bread in oven to broil, put it face down.
