Herb Focaccia Bread




Artisan type breads are so delicious and popular right now, and I have been experimenting!   Here is another simple recipe that uses your bread machine's dough setting.  Its delicious and savory to accompany an autumn soup or make an ordinary school lunch sandwich extra special.   Enjoy!

Herb Focaccia


1 1/4 Cups Water (warm)
2 Tbsp + 1 tsp. Olive Oil
2 1/4 tsp.  Italian herbs, fresh or dried (basil, oregano, chive, thyme, etc.)
1 1/2 tsp. Salt
3 Cups + 3 Tbsp. Bread  Flour
1 1/2 tsp.  Yeast

Topping:
3 Tbsp. Olive Oil
3/4 tsp.  Salt
1/3 Cup Parmesan Cheese
1/4 Cup Chopped Fresh or dried Herbs

Place all ingredients in order listed in bread machine at dough setting.  When finished, roll and stretch into a circle shape- folding your edges under.  Place on a baking sheet and allow to rise for about 45 minutes or double its size.   Mix ingredients for your topping and set aside.  With a little oil on your fingers, press indentations into your dough about 1/2 inch deep and 1 inch apart all over the top.  Drizzle topping over the holes.  Place in preheated 450 degree oven and bake for about 20 minutes or golden.
