Herb flavoured focaccia

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
5 cups Bread flour
1 tablespoon Freeze dried yeast
2 cups Warm water
2 teaspoons Salt
½ teaspoon Black pepper
2 tablespoons Fresh rosemary
2 tablespoons Fresh parsley
2 tablespoons Fresh basil
2 tablespoons Fresh chives
¾ cup Olive oil
6 \N Cloves garlic; smashed
1 teaspoon Dried chilli flakes

Heat the olive oil with the garlic cloves and the chilli flakes until almost smoking. Allow to cool.

In a small bowl, mix all the herbs.

In a large mixing bowl, add the flour, salt, pepper, yeast, warm water and 3 tablespoons of the flavoured oil. Add half the herb mixture. Mix well until the dough forms a shaggy mass then turn out onto a floured bench and begin to knead. Knead vigorously for 10 minutes until the dough is smooth and elastic.

Place the dough in an oiled bowl and allow to rise for at least one hour, until doubled in size.

Turn the dough out and divide into two pieces. Oil two baking sheets. Press each piece of dough onto separate trays and dimple vigorously. Brush with some remaining olive oil and sprinkle with herbs.

Allow the dough to rise again, about 30 minutes then bake at 220c. Cut into squares or fingers and serve with remaining olive oil for dipping if desired.
