2 ½ cups Michelles flour mix*** (see below)
1 tablespoon xanthan gum
1 teaspoon salt
¾ teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon crushed rosemary
1 teaspoon oregano
2 tablespoons sugar
1 ½ cups warm water
2 tablespoons yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoons olive oil
Combine the first 7 dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside.
In a mixing bowl combine half of the warm water (¾ cup), the yeast, and 1 teaspoon sugar. Allow the yeast to proof until foamy. Add the remaining ¾ cup water, olive oil, and eggs.
Using the flat beater attachment, mix the yeast mixture on low and add the reserved flour mixture all at once. Mix on low speed until no lumps remain and the dough resembles a thick batter.
Grease a 12-inch pizza pan and press the dough evenly to form a thick crust. Allow it to rise uncovered in a warm place, until doubled in bulk (You can warm your oven to 200F, turn it off, open the door for a minute, then put the Focaccia in).
Remove the Focaccia from the oven. Preheat the oven 425F.
Just before putting the Focaccia in the oven, top it with caramelized onion (see below**). Bake for 25-30 minutes until it is golden brown. Makes 8 servings.
