Focaccia With Olive Oil and Rosemary
1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, yeast and salt. Using a wooden spoon, stir to mix well. Add the 3 tablespoons olive oil. Then gradually stir in the 1-1/4 cups warm water until all of the flour has been absorbed and a dough forms. You may not need all of the water, or you may need a bit more depending on humidity, dryness of your flour and other factors.
5. Punch down the dough and transfer to the floured surface. Knead a few times, then let rest for 5-6 minutes. With the palms of your hands, form dough into a rectangle about 4 by 8 inches. Roll out the dough to fit the prepared pan. Transfer the dough to the pan, stretching and patting the dough to cover the pan bottom with an even thickness. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise until about 1 inch high, 20-30 minutes.
