Olive and Herb Focaccia

Today is the second day of Blogging Marathon#15. I already have a recipe for focaccia with oregano and basil. So today I used olives and Italian seasoning for this flavorful bread. Focacccia is an Italian bread which usually is brushed with olive oil. The bread dough is similar to pizza dough and it is shaped by hands. It is also dotted by finger to create wells all over the surface. The bread tasted nice with all those olives and herbs.

Instant Yeast-1tsp
Extra Virgin Olive Oil-3tbs
Black Olives Chopped-1/4cup

9. Dip the index finger in warm water and make press on the dough to make indents.
10. Brush with the remaining oil.
