Focaccia Bread

I do this in a bread machine using the "pizza dough" or "dough only" setting

Add ingredients in order listed:
3/4 cup warm water
1 tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 1/4 cup flour
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp yeast

Pat in a circle about 1/2 inch thick.
Sprinkle flour or corn meal on baking pan.
Add dough to pan.
Make indentations with your finger.
Brush with olive oil.
Add toppings...I like to sprinkle with oregano, shredded parmesan cheese and olives.

Let sit for 15-20 minutes.
Preheat oven to 400.
Bake for about 20 minutes until the top is lightly golden.

This is the same recipe for pizza dough. Just take from the bread machine, roll out and start topping! Great as an appetizer or maybe a gift for the neighbors!
