HeraldNet made an interesting point in one of their online stories. Why buy Focaccia in a supermarket when you can easily make it yourself at home. Here's the recipe for what is called Easy Italian Herb Focaccia.
- 31/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 envelope Fleischmann's RapidRise Yeast
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, divided
- 12/3 cups warm (120-130 degrees) water
- 2 tablespoons shredded fresh Parmesan cheese
- 1 tablespoon Italian herb seasoning
flour, undissolved yeast, sugar and salt in a large bowl. Add 2
tablespoons of the olive oil and water, stirring until well mixed.
Spread dough into a greased 9-by-13-inch baking pan. Cover.
Let dough rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. Poke multiple holes into the dough, using the handle of a wooden spoon. Drizzle remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil over dough, then sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese and Italian herb seasoning. Cover.
Let dough rise again for an additional 15 minutes while the oven preheats to 375 degrees.
Uncover and bake 30 to 35 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool slightly and cut into slices; serve warm. If desired, serve with additional olive oil for dipping.
