Mix yeast, warm water, and 1/2 of the flour mixture to a bowl. Stir and cover. Let rest for 2-3 hours.
Add the rest of the flour and the salt to the mixture. Knead your dough until it forms a smooth ball, then cover with a clean tea towel and let rise for another hour.
Carefully cut the dough ball into three equal pieces. Press each piece down until approximately 8X4 inch in size, then roll it lengthwise back into a sub shape, pinching the edges to a point. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet.
Cover with a clean towel and let rise again for one more hour, until doubled in size.
Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Carefully score the top of your bread down the center.
Place a tray of hot water in the bottom of your oven, then spray your dough with hot water as well. Place your dough in the oven for 8 minutes, then spray them again with water. Place back in the oven for another 12-15 minutes.
Remove from the oven and set aside.
