Focaccia Bread


Focaccia Bread
(I use this recipe for Pizza, cheese sticks, focaccia bread.. my kids call it cheesy bread and they love it!)

3/4 cups bread flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp white sugar
1 TBS active dry yeast
1 tsp garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp Italian seasonings
1 pinch ground black pepper
1 TBS vegetable oil
1 C water
2 TBS butter
1 TBS grated Parmesan cheese
1 C mozzarella

2 TBS corn Corn meal

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

When the dough has pulled together, 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 baking sheet sprinkled with corn meal. Pat into a 1/2 inch thick rectangle. Brush top with butter. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and mozzarella cheese.

Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve warm.
