How to make Focaccia Bread (Improved Recipe as of April 2012)
In a large bowl, stir together:1 1/4 cup whole white wheat flour
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon white sugar
1 tablespoon active dry yeast (a little more than one packet)
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1 pinch ground black pepper (optional)
2 tablespoons vegetable oil1 cup warm water
When it has mixed enough to resemble dough, 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 400 degrees F. Punch dough down; place on greased baking sheet. Pat into a 1/2 inch thick rectangle. Brush top with olive oil. (Olive oil not needed for pizza crust)
Bake in preheated oven for 15-18 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve warm.

I made this dough into a pizza, and it turned out AMAZING! The best pizza I have ever tasted... and I give all the credit to the focaccia bread dough.
***If making a pizza, this recipe makes one medium size pizza. Bake dough crust alone for about 9 minutes before loading with sauce and toppings. Then, bake for about 7 minutes longer or until heated through and toppings are browned.
