Today, I made my first focaccia bread with my mother-in-law. This is the recipe I used, but I did all herbs and cheeses to taste rather than to the directions.
1 3/4 cups and 1 tablespoon flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon white sugar
2 teaspoons active dry yeast
3/4 teaspoons garlic powder
3/4 teaspoons dried oregano
3/4 teaspoons dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
2/3 pinch ground black pepper
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
2/3 cup water
1 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon oil
2 teaspoons grated parmasan cheese
2/3 cup mozzarella
1. Mix together all dry ingredients, then mix in oil. Once dough has formed into a ball, spray a bowl with oil and then place dough in bowl. Allow to rise in a warm place for 20 minutes.
2. Place on a greased sheet and form into a 1/2 inch thick rectangle.
3. Brush with oil and sprinkle with cheeses.
3. Bake at 450 for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
