Focaccia Bread

This is a simple bread to make that is just delicious! We love it with bean soup or just as breadsticks to dip in pizza sauce.
The kids have fun helping to push it out on the tray. It doesn't really matter what is looks like so it is easy to turn over to them.

Bake until it is golden brown.

Cut into sticks and enjoy!

Focaccia Bread

1 ½ cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp dried basil
1 ½–2 cups white bread flour
1 pinch black pepper
¼ cup gluten flour
1 Tbsp yeast
1 tsp salt
¼ cup dry milk powder
1 tsp sugar
1 Tbsp oil
1 tsp garlic powder
1 ¼ cups hot water
1 tsp dried oregano
1 cup mozzarella cheese
1 tsp dried thyme
1 Tbsp Parmesan cheese

Mix according to basic bread making instructions. Once dough has completed the first rise, place on greased baking sheet. Push out into a ½ inch thick rectangle. You do not let it rise a second time. Spray top of loaf with oil and sprinkle with additional dry herbs if desired. (I like to sprinkle some rosemary on top along with some other herbs. Many times I bake it without adding anything though.)  Bake at 400° F for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses. Bake an additional 5 minutes or until golden brown. Makes 1 loaf.
