Bon Appetit: Bread-machine Focaccia

I had a carb-craving this past weekend and decided to indulge in the treat of making homemade Focaccia. That said, I had a lot on my plate and had to opt for a bread-machine version. Despite this minor change, it was delicious and paired perfectly with a certain salad…

Bread Machine Focaccia (12 servings)
Ingredients:
Bread
1 cup lukewarm water
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 garlic cloves minced
1 tablespoon fresh chopped lemon thyme
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
Topping
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons fresh chopped lemon thyme

Directions:
1. Place the “Bread” ingredients in the bread machine in their listed order. Select Dough cycle; press Start.
2. Remove dough from the bread machine when the cycle is complete. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
3. Flatten dough to 1 1/2 cm on a floured cookie sheet. Use your fingers to dimple the dough every inch or so.

This crispy bread tastes fabulous drizzled with balsamic, as bruschetta, for a sandwich and in a salad.
