Bread Machine Focaccia
Focaccia is a great snack; it can be cut up and served as an hors d'oeuvre, and it goes well with soups and pasta.
1 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
2 1/2 cups bread flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup water
1 tablespoon cornmeal
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon coarse salt
2 teaspoons dried rosemary
- Add the yeast, flour, salt, vegetable oil, and water in the order suggested by your bread machine manual and process on the dough cycle according to the manufacturer's directions.
- At the end of the dough cycle, remove the dough from the machine. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
- Cut the dough in half. Press out each half into a circle about 9 inches in diameter. Transfer to a pizza tray or cookie sheet dusted with the cornmeal. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and let rise 5 minutes.
- Press fingers into dough to create dimples. (You can also make one large focaccia that will cover a whole 11-by-16-inch pan.) Drizzle half the olive oil over each focaccia and sprinkle half the salt and half the rosemary on each. Bake for 15 minutes, or until golden.
