Basic Focaccia

Basic Focaccia

1lb all purpose flour

2 tsp. fine sea salt

1/2 tsp. instant yeast

9 1/2 oz. water

In a food processor fitted with metal blade, place flour, salt and yeast. With machine running slowly pour 130 degree water to the running machine feed tube. Blend until dough begins to come together. Remove from processor and place in large greased bowl , cover and refrigerate overnight. Remove dough from refrigerator and place on lightly floured surface. With your hands flatten out dough to a thickness of about 1/2 inch. Cover in warm place and allow to rest for about 15 minutes.

Preheat oven to 500 degrees.

Brush baking sheet with olive oil. Place flatten dough on sheet pan and using the pads of your fingers, flatten dough so that it fits the baking sheet. Cover and allow to rise about 45 minutes to 1 hour.

At this point use your imagination as to what you want as a topping. Brush well with olive oil before baking.

Bake 10-18 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 205 -210 degrees.

Cool on wire rack
