  1. In bread machine pan, place the first six ingredients in order suggested by manufacturer. Select dough setting (check dough after 5 minutes of mixing; add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water or flour if needed).
  2. When the cycle is completed, turn dough onto a lightly greased 12-in. pizza pan; pat into a 10-in. circle. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute onions and garlic in butter for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown. Stir in the Italian seasoning; cook 1 minute longer.
  3. Using the end of a wooden spoon handle, make deep indentations 1 in. apart in dough. Top with onion mixture and cheeses. Bake at 400 degrees F for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.

This was SO good, and very beautiful too! Simple to make, as well. I don't have a bread machine so I did this by hand. I proofed the yeast first w/warm water (110-115 degrees) and sugar for 1...

This was a pleasant surprise as I thought this would be good, but it's great. I made a double batch preparing one as written with sharp cheddar cheese and the other one with mozzarella and thin...

This focaccia bread is not only easy to make, but absolutely wonderful! I was very impressed how well it turned out. I followed the recipe exactly, but used freshly grated parmesan cheese and mo...

I use this wonderful recipe for both focaccia and pizza crust. For a different take: Roll out 1/2 of the dough as thin as possible on a floured surface and cut with a 3 inch round biscuit cutter...

I used an extra ounce of water, but other than that the ingredients for this bread are right on! One thing I want to mention is that focaccia is not really supposed to be kneaded, so using the b...

Very good. Would recommend a little less onion and cheese. Yummy!

Amazing! Everybody that tasted it loved it.
