Bread Machine Focaccia

Garlic and Rosemary Focaccia Bread

Bread Ingredients

  • 1 c water, 80° F
  • 1/3 c olive oil
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt
    • 3 cups bread flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
  • 2 tsp chopped fresh rosemary

Add the ingredients, except rosemary, to the bread machine. Set machine on dough setting.

At the first pause in the cycle add chopped rosemary. Continue through dough cycle.

Prepare Topping

  • 1/4 c extra virgin olive oil
  • 6-8 cloves garlic, chopped fine
  • 1 T fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1/3 c shredded parmesan cheese

Heat the extra virgin olive oil in a small pan over medium heat. When hot add the chopped garlic. You'll hear it sizzle.

Remove from heat and add chopped rosemary. Set aside.

When dough cycle completes, press the dough into a well-oiled 9" x 13'-inch pan. Make indentations in the dough with your fingers.

Cover and let rise for 30 minutes, or until nearly double in size.

Preheat oven to 400°F. Use fingers to once again press indentations in the dough. Spoon olive oil topping evenly over dough. Sprinkle with shredded parmesan cheese. Bake for 20 minutes, or until done. Let sit 15 minutes before cutting.
