Use dough for Mediterranean Stuffed Focaccia w/ Spinach, Onion, Tomato, and Mozerella Recipe!

Yield: 6 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 Tablespoon Yeast
  • 1 cup plus 2 Tablespoons Water, warm
  • 1 Tablespoon Molasses
  • 4 cups Flour, Bread
  • 1 teaspoon    Salt
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Oregano

Instructions:

In a mixing bowl combine the year, warm water, and molasses.  Let rest for 5 minutes to activate the yeast.  Add the flour, salt, olive oil, and oregano and mix together until a single mass of dough forms.  Knead for 5 to 7 minutes.  

Place the dough into a lightly oiled bowl, leaving room for it to double, and cover with plastic wrap.  If you are going to use this the same day, set it on the counter-top for approximately 1 hour and allow it to double. If you are going to prepare this the night before, place the dough into the refrigerator until you are ready to form the focaccia.
