Homemade Foccocia Bread


My husband worked in a local Pizzeria while in Jr. High and still knows how to spin a pizza.  I make the dough and he makes it into a delicious Foccocia.  We like to eat it as an Appetizer or add some proteins and more cheese and make a pizza.

When we were in College we used to buy pre-baked Foccocia from a local bakery and our own toppings, we have fond memories of those days.

1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
1 teaspoon white sugar
1 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
 2 1/2 cups bread flour
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt

Topping:  We used grape tomatoes and sprinkled on Oregano, Salt and a little Italian Seasoning

Directions

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F . In a medium bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.

Stir in flour, salt and oil. Beat until smooth. Let rest for 5 minutes.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and pat or roll into a round. (to make it resemble a Foccocia use your fingers and dimple the top) Transfer crust to a lightly greased pizza pan or baker's peel dusted with cornmeal.

Spread with desired toppings and bake in preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown.

Let baked pizza cool for 5 minutes before serving.
