I made focaccia last night along with Jill's recipe for Penne with Sun-dried tomatoes and spinach.  The bread machine does the brunt of the work, and you get the fun stuff like punching and poking.

Place the following ingredients in your bread machine, following the order your machine recommends.  Use the dough setting on your machine.

Scant 1 cup water
1 Tbl olive oil
3 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp yeast

After the dough is done, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface.  Punch it down and flatten it slightly.  Shape the dough into a ball and then roll it into a round of about 10".  Place it into a greased round cake pan.  Cover with oiled plastic wrap and let rise 20 minutes.

Uncover the focaccia.  Using your fingertips, poke the dough to make deep dimples in the surface.  Cover and let rise until double, 10-15 minutes.

Drizzle with 2 Tbl olive oil.  Sprinkle with a combination of garlic powder and kosher salt and a little black pepper, to taste. 

Bake 20-25 minutes, or until golden.  Serve warm.
