Recipe by Debber
READY IN: 2hrs 10mins




  • Add to bread machine in order specified by your owner's manual; set controls to DOUGH or PIZZA (mine goes for just under an hour).
  • At the end of the cycle, place dough on a seasoned baking stone (mine is a rectangle) or a pizza pan.
  • Preheat oven to 400.
  • Press or roll dough out to edges of pan; let rise 10-30 minutes depending how patient and/or hungry you are! While this is rising in a WARM spot, prepare one of the toppings (below).
  • Make random indentations with fingertips over top of dough; the toppings will fill these spots.
  • HERBY TOPPING: In a small sauce-pan, heat olive oil, add herbs as this heats, then add garlic; allow to sizzle for about 30 seconds (do NOT burn); remove from heat; drizzle over bread dough; spread with back of spoon; sprinkle to taste with salt.
  • ONION TOPPING: Melt butter in small sauce-pan, add onions, saute until golden (or transparent); remove from heat, add mayo; spread over focaccia dough.
  • OLIVE TOPPING: Mix all ingredients, spread over dough.
  • BAKING DIRECTIONS: Bake for 20 minutes (nicely tanned); cut or tear into serving portions.
  • OTHER IDEAS: Use flat bread for panini sandwiches OR wedges to dip into soup or stew OR unbaked as a base for your pizza.
