Garlic Focaccia - Bread Machine




1 1/4 cup water
2 Tablespoons olive oil
2 1/4 cups unbleached flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
2 1/2 teaspoons yeast
1/4 cup olive oil
coarse salt

Assemble ingredients (except 1/4 cup olive oil and coarse salt) in the pan of your bread machine according to the manufacturer's recommendations. Set for "dough." Prepare pan by lining a rimmed cookie sheet with parchment paper and pour 2 Tablespoons olive oil over the surface of the parchment. When dough is complete, turn it out onto prepared sheet. Flip it over so that both sides are "oiled." Spread dough in pan. Cover gently with plastic wrap and allow to rise, at least 30 minutes, but more if possible.

About 30 minutes before baking, preheat oven to 450°. Remove plastic wrap and drizzle remaining olive oil over the top. Sprinkle with salt and bake for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.


Don't forget the dimples. Ya gotta make the dimples.

Before drizzling on the olive oil and rosemary/thyme/whatever. Either use your two fingers or the handle of a wooden spoon. Press down gently on the dough, make dimples. Then drizzle the olive oil and herbs on.
