  Categories: Bread
       Yield: 4 Servings
 
   2 1/4 ts Active dry yeast
       3 c  Bread flour
     1/2 ts Salt
     1/2 ts Sugar
       1 c  Water; plus
       2 tb Water
       1 tb Olive oil
 
 ---------------------------BASIC FOCACCIA TOPPING---------------------------
       2 tb Extra virgin olive oil
       2 ts Coarse salt
            Freshly ground black pepper
 
   Machine Procedure (For a 2-cup capacity bread machine): All ingredients
   must be at room temperature, unless otherwise noted. Add ingredients,
   except toppings, in the order specified in your bread machine owner’s
   manual. Set bread machine on dough/manual setting. At the end of the
   program, press clear/stop. To punch dough down, press start and let knead
   for 60 seconds. Press clear/stop again. Remove dough and let rest 5 minutes
   before hand-shaping.
 
   If your bread machine does not have a dough/manual setting, follow normal
   bread making procedure, but let dough knead only once. At the end of the
   kneading cycle, press clear/stop. Let dough rise for 60 minutes, checking
   after the first 30 minutes to make sure dough does not overrise and touch
   lid. Press start and let machine run for 60 seconds to punch dough down.
   Press clear/stop again. Remove dough and let rest 5 minutes before
   hand-shaping.
 
   Hand-Shaping Technique: Sprinkle hands with flour. With fingertips, spread
   dough evenly into a 13- X 9- X 1-inch lightly oiled baking pan. Cover with
   a clean kitchen cloth. Let rise until doubled in height, about 30 to 60
   minutes.
 
   Preheat oven to 400F. Make light indentations with your fingertips in the
   surface of the risen dough. Brush with extra-virgin olive oil and sprinkle
   with coarse salt and black pepper. Bake on bottom rack of oven for
   approximately 30 to 35 minutes, or until golden brown. Let cool in pan. Cut
   into twelve equal pieces and serve at room temperature.
