Focaccia (two 10" Focaccia's or one pizza dough)
1 package (2 1/4 teaspoons) active dry yeast
1 1/3 cups warm water
Combine and let sit for 5 minutes
3 1/2 to 3 3/4 cups of all purpose flour
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 table spoon salt
1 table spoon sugar (optional)
Knead for 10 minutes lightly coat with oil and place in a bowl

double in size (I use the top of the refrigerator the heat from
the back works well or in front of a vent register).
