I was baking like a crazy person today and had to bring out all my weapons, that being my bread machine. This allowed me to compress time with other baking I was doing.
Rosemary Parmesan Focaccia Bread Machine Method
2 1/4 cups water
1/4 tsp sugar
1 3/4 teaspoons instant yeast
5 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh rosemary leaves
1/4 cup grated Parmensan
freshly cracked black pepper
Place all the ingredients except the topping ingredients in the required order as stated with your bread machine. Set machine on dough setting. When completed, line bottom of pan with parchment paper, oil with olive oil liberally a 9X13 pan or jelly roll sheet. It only depends on the thickness you want to achieve. I used a 9X13 for a specific sandwich I was making. Press the dough into the pan evenly or with a jelly roll pan lined with parchment pres dough to a 1/2 inch thickness. With your fingers poke dimples into the pressed out dough. Brush with olive oil and sprinkle lightly with salt , pepper, rosemary leaves and Parmesan cheese. Bake in preheated oven set for 400 degrees for about 30 minutes or until top is golden.
*This same recipe can be made conventionally just as you would any other yeast bread recipe using 2 rises, baking on second rise.
