Instructions
  1. Mix the starter and let stand at room temperature for several hours or overnight in the refrigerator.
  2. Place all the starter it a mixing bowl. Sprinkle with 1 1/2 teaspoon yeast. Add the flour & Italian seasoning. Mix to combine.
  3. Add the water, mix. Add the salt and olive oil.
  4. Knead for about 6 - 8 minutes on speed 2 of a stand mixer. Dough should pull away from the sides of the bowl and climb your dough hook but will still be very sticky and will not be pulling away from the bottom of the bowl. If the dough isn't pulling away from the sides add an additional 1/4 - 1/2 cups flour. Dough should be smooth and elastic but very sticky.
  5. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper and coat with olive oil.
  6. Scrape the dough onto the parchment and spray the top of the dough with cooking spray or oil. Cover with plastic wrap. Let rise until doubled in size. When dough has doubled, gently stretch the dough into a rectangle.
  7. Whirl 1/4 cup olive oil with the garlic. Spread onto the the dough. Using your finger tips gently press the dough making little indents and pushing the dough into the corners of the baking sheet.
  8. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning and parmesan cheese. Add any additional toppings you like. Cover with sprayed plastic wrap and let rise for about 30 - 45 minutes until dough is puffy.
  9. Preheat oven to 425
  10. Bake at 425 for about 20 - 25 minutes. The foccacia should be lightly brown but the bottom will still be pale in color. Remove from pan by pulling the parchment paper onto a cooling rack. Pull the parchment out and let bread cool a rack.
  11. Cool and cut into serving sized pieces.
