  1. In a large bowl, dissolve honey and yeast in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
  2. Add 1 cup flour, salt, and 3 tablespoons olive oil to the yeast mixture. Stir until combined and then work in the last cup of flour. Knead the dough until smooth, elastic, and soft, about 7 minutes. Add only enough flour to keep the dough from being sticky. Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.
  3. Deflate the dough and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Roll out the dough into a rectangle, about 1/2 inch thick. Place in greased 9x13 inch pan or baking sheet. Cover and let rise until doubled in volume, about 40 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  4. Poke dimples in the bread and drizzle 1 tablespoon of the olive oil on top. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.

Well, it rose nicely the first time. Much less so on the 2nd rise. So it was much thinner than I would have liked - about 1/2" total. Could be because I rolled it too thin. Also, it seemed r...

This was not difficult at all to make. It was worth the work. The seven minutes of kneading really paid off. I topped it with chopped garlic and fresh rosemary, and baked it on the pizza stone. ...

This bread is just as the title says "Fantastic". I quadrupled it, the amount of yeast I used was 1 1/2 teas. of SAF brand yeast. I dimpled the surface of the bread and poured on the olive oil...

I used my KitchenAid mixer with the dough hook to do the kneading, and even so, it took quite a bit longer than 7 minutes to make the dough soft. I also added an Italian mix of spices as the mix...

A fantastic, EASY focaccia recipe. I baked it straight onto the Pizza stone. I also shaped the dough after it had risen and placed on top garlic, rosemary, basil and some fresh parmesan cheese.

Simply delicious! My first bread using yeast, I can't seem to bake enough because everyone wants to try it! I added herbs the second time around - a tsp each of oregano, rosemary, basil, thyme, ...

My husband made this for me. He could not beleive how easy it was to do! He sprinkeled the top with Mrs. Dash Gallant Garlics classic Italiano. Then made it into a Portabello Mushroom sandwich...

Amazing! I used 5 Tbsp of olive oil and put it in a bowl mixed with 2 garlic cloves, minced, 1Tbsp of rosemary, a pinch of fresh ground pepper, 1/4 tsp oregano and 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes, and...

This is a very easy and simple bread to make, especially for a first time bread maker which I was before this recipe. I've made focaccia three times and every time it taste great. One of my frie...
