    This is for two full sheet pans. It is a basic recipe that you can add your own additions as you wish.

    Water        2600mL  

    Sugar          100g

    Yeast            68g

    Basil             18g

    Oregano       18g

    Flour          3120g

    Salt               75g

    Use lukewarm water (110*F). Dissolve sugar in water. Sprinkle yeast on top of water. Set aside for 5 minutes.

    In mixer bowl blend flour, herbs and salt well. Add in yeast mixture to flour blend and, using dough hook, mix for 6 minutes on low.

    Prepare sheet pans by spraying with oil. Divide dough evenly between pans and press out evenly and into all corners on pan (I have to roll it out). Cover and let rise 30 mins. Uncover, roll out again, cover and let rise one more time for another 20 mins.

    Bake at 350*F for 20 mins. 

    It is a simple recipe however you can gourmet it up any way you like and it works out every time.

    Throwing a fistful of nice herbs into a couple of JiffyMix boxes works nice and easy. Before you put it into the oven you paint the top w/ an oil/butter mix. It comes out beautiful.

    Crack wise all you like. I'm OK with that. There are a lot of pre-mix packaged items that work just absolutely fine for what they are made for. The only trick is leaving "Supreme Chef Attitude" at the door.

    IceMan is right. The problem is that most such products are disgusting and awful. But if you find one that is actually good, it can be a godsend!

    200 gr water room temperature. (Winter 30')

    20 gr Evo Oil (I mean real evo oil)

    7 gr sal

    3 gr malt

    320 gr Bread flour ( medium W, pizza flour  is well too)

    6 gr dry yeast.

    normally 500 gr dough for a 25X40 cm pan.

    I'll post the video recipe In Italian but you can ask to Vittorio the admin, any question Because He lives in the US.

    Anyway the vid is very complete, the secret that make the difference is bake the Focaccia with steam, normally I use a spray bottle and every 10 min I hydrate the Focaccia inside the oven With a blend of water and Oil.
