Focaccia

Whisk together

1 envelope active dry yeast (about 2¼ teaspoons)

2 teaspoons honey

2½ cups warm water

Let rest in a warm spot until foamy


Knead that with

5 cups (625 g) all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon salt


Coat that in about

4 tablespoons of olive oil

Cover and let rise until doubled


Butter a 9x13" baking pan (or smaller if you want thicker bread)

Pour one tablespoon of olive oil in the pan too (this gives it that crispy, flavorful exterior)

Spread the dough into the baking pan, adding any leftover oil from the bowl

Let rise until doubled


Then dimple the dough with your fingers (reaching all the way to the bottom of the pan)

Drizzle a bit more olive oil on top

Sprinkle on some flaky salt too


Bake at 450F for 20-30 minutes, until golden


I then cut these into thick squares and put any leftovers in the freezer to preserve and pull out later for a sandwich or whatever.


These are all the reasons the van had to have a freezer and an oven!
