Rosemary and Olive Focaccia
ready in 1 hr 20 min.
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Dissolve sugar, yeast and warm water in a small bowl and set aside for 12 minutes.
In a large mixing bowl mix flour and salt together. Add the dissolved yeast and 2 tablespoons of oil and mix together with the flour and salt until until a dough ball has formed.
Knead the dough on a floured work surface for approximately 5 minutes. Shape into a smooth ball and place in a lightly oiled bowl. Cover the bowl with a damp cloth and let rise for 40 minutes, until it has doubled in size.
Place the dough on a greased baking sheet. Press dough down onto baking sheet in desired shape. Brush dough with remaining olive oil. Add olives, rosemary sprigs, sea salt and pepper.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool a few minutes before serving.
