Rosemary Focaccia

I love focaccia, it has a wonderful texture that's chewy and delicious and always has great toppings. It makes excellent sandwiches, it's perfect for dunking in soup or with pasta.

This is a simple recipe for a rosemary focaccia, but the toppings can be changed to basically anything you like, it's so versatile.

Rosemary Focaccia 

Dough:

3/4 cup water
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups bread flour
1 1/2 teaspoons bread machine yeast

Topping:

3 tablespoons olive oil  
3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh rosemary
coarse sea salt

Place all the dough ingredients into the bread machine and select dough cycle. After the cycle completes, move dough to a lightly greased bowl, cover and allow to rise another 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 400.

Press dough into a large circle (about 1- 1 1/2 inches thick) and then use your fingers to dimple the dough. Drizzle the olive oil over the top (it will look like a lot but it really makes the texture of the bread) and then sprinkle the top with the rosemary and sea salt.

Bake for about 15 minutes until golden brown.
