Italian Focaccia

I love bread.

It's a weakness.

I inherited it.

Must be genetic.

Thus, I made this yummy bread to share with the ones who gave me my genes.

They liked it too.

Italian Focaccia Bread - Adapted from Real Mom Kitchen

2 tsp. yeast
1 T sugar
1 C + 2 T warm water
1 T olive oil
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. sea salt
1 T Italian seasoning
3 C flour (1 C wheat, 2 C white wheat)

1 T olive oil
1/2 C Parmesan cheese
sea salt

Combine yeast and water. Allow mixture to sit for 2-3 minutes. Then add in olive oil, sugar salt.

Add in spices.

 Knead the dough until well combined.

Cover and let the dough rise for 1 hour.  You can make the dough up to 24 hours in advance - cover with plastic wrap and store in the fridge until ready to use.

Preheat the oven to 425.  Press the dough into a 12-inch circle.

Drizzle with olive oil and then press indentations into the dough.

Cover with cheese and additional spices.

Bake for 15-20 minutes until dough is puffed and golden brown.

Cut into wedges and serve.


The leftovers were great sandwich bread too!
