I never realized you could whip up focaccia so quickly! I'm not a bread baker, but thought I remembered reading somewhere about needing warm but not hot water so the yeast would work...so I just winged it and used warm tap water when adding all the ingredients. BUT thank goodness I read the reviews during the 20 minute rise cycle...as others recommended, the warm water IS important, and it seemed many readers suggested a second rise cycle. So, I guess I lucked out on the water, then after the first rise, I did punch it down, form it, then let it rise again for another 30 minutes. Even with the extra rise, it still only took just over an hour. I used 2 cups of regular unbleached flour and 3/4 cup whole wheat flour. I didn't have any mozzarella, so I used 3/4 cup freshly grated Romano cheese on top and added some sliced Calamata olives. FA-BU-LOUS !!
