Peppered Foccacia

Peppered Foccacia

Bell peppers, herbs and mozzarella cheese punch up the flavor in this easy-to-make flatbread.

Ingredients



Instructions

  1. Mix 1 1/2 cups of flour, the sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt and the yeast in large bowl.
  2. Heat water and 2 tablespoons of the oil until very warm (120 degrees F to 130 degrees F); stir into flour mixture. Beat with electric mixer on low speed about 30 seconds, scraping bowl occasionally, until batter is springy and pulls away from side of bowl. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Cover and let rise in warm pace about 1 hour or until double. (If using quick yeast, omit 1-hour rising; cover and let rest on floured surface for 10 minutes.)
  3. Grease 2 cookie sheets.
  4. Stir down dough; divide in half. Place each half on cookie sheet; press into 12-inch circle. Brush each circle with about 1 tablespoon of the remaining oil. Top each with half of the bell peppers, cheese, basil, oregano, garlic powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Let stand for 10 to 12 minutes.
  5. Heat oven to 425 degrees F.
  6. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
  7. Cut into wedges.
  8. Serve hot.
