“I've used this as the basis for a plain focaccia, added rosemary to the dough for a twist, pushed olives into the top for a little something extra... This is easily modified to suit your needs. Easily halved for a smaller loaf.”

Directions

  1. set the oven to 425°F.
  2. Put the yeast in a large mixing bowl and pour in the warm water.
  3. Add the salt and 2 cups of the flour, mix into a soft and sticky dough.
  4. Add the remaining 2 cups of flour and mix well. (The dough will still be sticky).
  5. Cover and let rise for 40 minutes in a warm place.
  6. Press out the dough on a well oiled, or silpat lined baking sheet. Using your fingers, ease it into a rectangle, approximately 9×13, give or take.
  7. Put the olive oil in a small bowl and dip your fingers into the oil, and then all over the bread, poking the bread surface and leaving little pools of oil. Do this all over the bread. Don’t skimp; this will result in great flavor after the bread is baked.
  8. Sprinkle sea salt over all, and finally top with a dusting of Parmesan cheese.
  9. Bake for 18-20 minutes until lightly golden.
