Homemade Focaccia

Easy and delicious!!  goes great with cannellini beans and roasted garlic dip!

1 cup lukewarm water + 1/8 cup
2  1/2  tsp active dry yeast
2 tbsp honey
3 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup olive oil + 1/8 cup
1 tsp kosher salt
2 tbsp finely chopped fresh rosemary
1 tbsp dried oregano

Mix the honey and water, add the yeast, let sit for about 10 minutes until it starts to bubble and foam. Add the flour, 1 cup at a time, dissolve the salt in the 1/8 cup of water and add it to the dough, add the olive oil and keep kneading for about 8 minutes or until smooth and elastic.

Form the dough into a round and place in an oiled bowl, turn to coat the entire ball, cover with a damp cloth and let it rise somewhere warm, when it doubles its size (about 40 minutes) stretch it into a rectangle, cover and let it sit again for about 20 minutes, dimple with your fingertips and brush with 1/4 cup olive oil mixed with the rosemary and oregano.

Bake at 400 F for about 30 minutes.  It should look like this!
