Mix the yeast and sugar with some warm water.  Whisk well, cover and leave
10-15 minutes until foamy.  Meanwhile, mix the flours and salt in a bowl.
When the yeast mixture is ready, pour it into the bowl and add 
enough water  to mix to a pliable dough.  Knead for 10 minutes or 100 strokes. 
Put in a  clean bowl and spray surface with water.  Cover and leave to 
rise for at least 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 375 deg F (190 C). Punch the dough down and divide into 10
pieces .  Roll each piece out on an unfloured board as thinly as possible.
Place on 
ungreased baking sheets, fitting as many as possible on each sheet without them 
 Bake 20 minutes, or until crispy and  golden.

OPTIONAL:  Can also add sesame seeds, poppy seeds etc using an egg wash to
make them stick.
