Focaccia

This is another recipe from the past that I made.  I love warm bread with all the herbs mixed in and Parmesan sprinkled on top.  






Focaccia

2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1 tbsp active dry yeast
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp thyme
t tsp basil
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 cup warm water
Extra extra virgin olive oil for coating dough and pan

Mix dry ingredients together in a large bowl.  Gradually add in olive oil and warm water.  Make sure all ingredients are mixed together before turning out onto a lightly floured surface.  Knead until smooth.  Coat dough with olive oil and place back into the bowl.  Cover and let rise for 30 minutes.  

Press dough into an oiled 9 x 13 pan.  Let rise another for another 30 minutes.  Rub more olive oil on top of dough and poke indents in every 2 inches.  Sprinkle top of dough with salt and freshly grated Parmesan cheese.  Bake at 400 for 20 minutes.  Be careful not to over bake.  Serve warm.
