Focaccia Bread. So delicious! We've been eating focaccia bread with balsamic vinegar, olive oil and garlic, basically forever. Recently I decided to make my own focaccia bread. It turned out better then I expected! So good, and so easy. :)
In a large bowl mix 2 3/4 flour, 1 tsp. sugar...
1 tsp. salt...
1 tsp. garlic powder. I use Roasted Garlic Aioli from Epicure, it is really good and adds a little more flavour than just plain garlic powder.
1 tsp. dried oregano...
1 tsp. dried rosemary...
And 1 tsp. dried basil.
Add 1 tablespoon active dry yeast.
Measure out 1 cup of warm water, make sure it is between 115-120°.
Add the water and 1 tbsp. olive oil to the flour mixture. Mix well.
Once the dough is mixed, take it out and knead on a flat surface. Add more olive oil if needed.
Once you have kneaded it for about 10 minutes, place in a bowl, cover with a damp cloth, and set in a warm place for about 20 minutes.
Cover with about 1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese and about 1/2 cup parmesan cheese.
Bake in a 450° preheated oven for about 15 minutes.
And enjoy! This bread is best eaten fresh, so only make it when you know it will be eaten. Which it will, unless you are leaving that day.
It tastes great plain, thanks to the cheese and herbs, but it also tastes amazing if you take about 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar, and 1/4 cup olive oil, add minced garlic, and mix together. Sooooo delicious! :)
