I do not have a bread machine so I made use of my kitchen aid (KA) mixer dough hook. The first thing I did was proof my yeast (warm cup of water mixed with 1 tablespoon of sugar then add yeast. Wait 10 mins and let yeast get foamy). Then added salt, 1 teaspoon dried oregano, 1 teaspoon dried thyme, 1/2 teaspoon dried basil and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. After mixing the flour with the yeast/herb mixture, I put the dough into the KA to knead for 5 mins. Afterward, I put the dough in a bowl with a warm damp towel on top for 40 mins. I did not have a pizza pan so I used a greased cookie sheet instead and shaped the dough into a rectangle. Then let it rise for 30 more minutes. I baked the focaccia halfway then put on the sauteed onions/garlic and cheeses so the toppings wouldn't burn. It took about 20 minutes to turn golden brown. Tasted fantastic! There are so many variations with this recipe! Thinly sliced tomatoes, grilled bell peppers, black olives etc. Thanks Cindy!
