       Title: Focaccia
  Categories:
       Yield: 1 servings
 
    4.00 c  unbleached flour
    0.67    fresh cake yeast,
       1    dissolved in 2/3 cup warm
       1    water
   10.00 tb olive oil
    0.33 c  water
    2.50 ts salt
 
   Mix 2 cups flour with the dissolved yeast.  Knead the dough for 10
   minutes, either by hand or in the bowl of an electric mixture with a
   dough hook.  Shape the dough into a ball, and put in an oiled bowl to
   rise until doubled in bulk, about 3 hours.
 
   Punch down, put the dough on a floured board, and knead again,
   incorporating the remaining flour, 1/3 cup olive oil, water, and salt.
   Knead until dough is smooth and elastic.  Let rise again in a covered
   bowl for another 3 hours.
 
   Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
 
   Divide the dough in half and roll out on a well-floured board to
   circles or squares 1/2 inch thick.  Brush with the remaining olive
   oil and press the topping of your choice into the top of each circle.
   Bake on a baking sheet until golden brown, about 20 minutes.  Serve
   warm or at room temperature, cut into wedges, squares, or triangles.
 
   NOTE:  Slashes may be made in a decorative or random pattern in the
   breads before baking.
