Focaccia Bread Recipe

Since Tim was home last night and niether one of us had school work to finish, we decided to try a new recipe. We found a recipe for foccacia bread on Allrecipes.com, but we altered it quite a bit. In case your not sure what focaccia bread is, here's a snipet from Wikipedia.


Focaccia (pronounced foe-CAH-cha) is a flat oven-baked Italian bread[1], which may be topped with herbs or other ingredients. Focaccia is related to pizza, but not considered to be the same. Focaccia is quite popular in Italy and is usually seasoned with olive oil and herbs, topped with onion, cheese and meat, or flavored with a number of vegetables.


Here's our version of Focaccia Bread.

Dough:
1 cup warm water
1 Tbsp active dry yeast
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 Tbsp salt
1 tsp white sugar
1 Tbsp garlic powder
1 Tbsp dried oregano
1 Tbsp dried thyme
1 Tbsp dried basil
1 pinch ground black pepper
1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Topping:
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 tsp Kosher salt
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup 6 cheese Italian shredded cheese (or shredded mozzarella)


DIRECTIONS
Dissolve the yeast in the water.

In a large bowl, stir together the flour, salt, sugar, garlic powder, oregano, thyme, basil and black pepper. Mix in the vegetable oil and water.

continue mixing until doughpulls together. Then turn it out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead until smooth and elastic. Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl, and turn to coat with oil. Cover with a damp cloth, and let rise in a warm place for 20 minutes.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Punch dough down; place on greased baking sheet. Pat into a 1/2 inch thick rectangle. Use your finger tips to make indentations all over the top of the dough. Brush top with olive oil and sprinkle with Kosher salt and Parmesan cheese.

Bake in preheated oven 10 minutes. Sprinkle the shredded cheese on top and bake for another 5 minutes, until the cheese is melted and the crust is golden brown. Serve warm or slice in half to make sandwiches.

This looks so yummy. We almost never eat white breads. About the only time we'll give in is with focaccia bread. We've never made out own though. I stopped by today as I'm working on visiting the many blogs from Bloggy Carnival now that I have time to read and comment.
