This month the What’s Baking? challenge was hosted by Jey of The Jey of Baking. She challenged us to do some savory baking. I knew immediately that I was going to make rosemary focaccia. Focaccia is on my list of 31 while 31 and my cousin Jessie gave me a recipe for the rosemary focaccia a few months back.
Rosemary Focaccia (adapted from Gayno’s School of Cooking)

1 t. dried rosemary

1. In a small bowl combine the water, yeast, and oil. Let sit for 5 minutes.
2. In another bowl mix the flour, salt, fresh rosemary, and dried rosemary. Mix the yeast mixture into the flour mixture. Stir for 2 minutes or until the dough is just combined and smooth.
3. Put in a bowl and cover. Let the dough sit for 2 hours or until it doubles in size.
5. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise 2 hours or until almost doubled.
