My Focaccia turned out “ok”. This recipe takes quite a bit of advance preparation. After mixing and two rises then the dough spends 24-36 hours in the refrigerator. Then an hour and a half before you want to bake it you take it out and let it rest for an hour before shaping and adding the topping. As I said it turned out “ok”. I think I got mine a bit too thin in spots. I was expecting it to be a bit thicker. I even ended up with a hole in one place. I used a pre-mixed pizza topping and garlic flavored garlic oil for the topping. It wasn’t bad with a bowl of soup for dinner. Before putting this dough in the refrigerator you shape it into three balls and place it in zip lock bags. I ended up freezing two of the balls for later. I haven’t used them yet, so I have yet to see if that works. My plan is to move it to the refrigerator a day before I need it so that it can thaw slowly in the refrigerator.
