  2 1/2 teaspoons yeast         2 1/2 cups warm water
  1     Tbs. olive oil          7 1/2 cups flour
  1     Tbs. salt               1     Tbs. lemon zest

note) kosher salt for top

Instructions:

  Proof the yeast, water and pinch of sugar.     Add oil,

flour, herbs, salt and lemon zest. Knead until it forms a smooth ball. Let rise about 1 hour in a warm place. Punch down and shape into 6 8-inch circles. Let rise about 20 minutes. Poke holds in it with fingertips. Brush with a bit of olive oil and sprinkle with chopped garlic and kosher salt. Bake about 35-45 minutes in a preheated 325-degree oven until top is brown and crispy.

Comments: This is a great focaccia recipe from a local deli here in Connecticut: NOTE: Try these herb combinations (fresh or dried): basil; lemon-rosemary; lemon-chive; lemon-basil; fennel-lemon or orange; crushed red pepper and oregano; chopped olives and rosemary; olives and sun-dried tomatoes; or your own combo. I used a variety of Italian seasonings and used this dough as a pizza crust. It was incredible!
