Meatless Monday - Rosemary Focaccia




Rosemary Focaccia

1 packet dry active yeast
1 1/4 cup warm water
3 tbsp olive oil, plus a little extra for brushing
2 tbsp chopped fresh rosemary
3 cups flour
1 tsp salt

Combine the yeast and warm water. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Turn out onto a floured board and knead to form a soft dough. Knead for 5 minutes, or until smooth. Pour some oil in the bowl you were using,  return the dough to the bowl, and rub some olive oil on it. Cover with a kitchen towel and allow it to rest for an hour. Punch down the dough and knead a few times. Using a floured rolling pin, roll out into a large circle about  1 1/2" thick. Transfer the dough to a baking sheet lined with a Silpat mat. Brush on alittle olive oil. Allow to rest for 30 minutes. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Your house will smell so wonderful. Top a desired, I think it's great with some olive tapenade.
I would also like to say that I hope everyone had a good Memorial Day.
