Focaccia Bread

Focaccia Bread

focaccia2

4 cups of all purpose flour

1 tsp salt

1 pkg yeast

2 cups water

Mix the flour, salt and yeast together in a large bowl.  Slowy add the water and stir with a wooden spoon till it all comes together and pulls away from the bowl.  If it’s too wet, add a bit more flour.  Dump it out onto a floured cutting board and knead it for 1 MINUTE.  Put it in an olive oiled bowl and cover with plastic wrappy stuff.  Put it in a warm place for 1 HOUR.  Heat your oven to 400. Remove plastic, and punch the dough. Don’t handle it too much.  Place it in a well olive oiled 9×11 pan. Poke holes all over with your finger or a wood spoon handle. Cover entire thing with olive oil. Don’t skimp on the oil. Then sprinkle on your toppings and bake it for 10 minutes. Sprinkle more olive oil and turn pan, and bake another 10 minutes.  (I only did 5 minutes since I like my bread light in color.) Remove from the oven and brush more olive oil. YES! more oil….trust me. I don’t even like olive oil and this was amazing. Let it sit in the pan for about 10 minutes and then remove. Then, just devour it….shove it in your face….pour yourself a glass of wine, enjoy. I made a great sammich with it today. YUM YUM.
