Caution: Focaccia

I know many of you all have tasted the deliciousness of Focaccia.   It is herbed bread with loads of olive oil. It’s crusty crust has a grease baked taste to it, that savory crunch from olive oil. Yum. I think that who ever invented focaccia had too much patience, that bread is time consuming. normally you gradually work the stickiness from a dough by punching, rounding, and benching, but not focaccia. That never gets to the un-sticky point.This dough is stubborn, that needs much persuading, but will eventually turn into a wonderful fluffy bread. I tend to under proof my bread. Shame on me for denying my bread full oven spring. I think it passed the test though. I should get the full report from Annie this week.
