Herb Focaccia Bread

I love bread! I can't think of a recipe I haven't liked. This Herb Focaccia Bread is no different - it's delicious! I usually make it to go along with pasta and then dip it in a mix of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Yum!!

I served this tasty Herb Focaccia Bread along with my Pasta with Garden Fresh Tomato Sauce.

2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon white sugar
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon oregano
1 tablespoon active dry yeast
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1 pinch ground black pepper
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 cup water
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese
1 cup grated mozzarella cheese

In a large bowl stir together flour, salt, sugar, yeast, garlic powder, oregano, thyme, basil and black pepper. Mix in the vegetable oil and water. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic. Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place for 20 minutes. Preheat oven to 450. Punch dough down and place on greased baking sheet. Pat into a 1/2 inch thick rectangle. Brush top with olive oil. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and mozzarella cheese. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
