2) Using a mixer and a dough hook, add the rest of the flour, water, yeast, and salt to the focaccia. Beat into a dough.
3) Let rise for 30 minutes in a warm oven, around 80 degrees.
4) Press the dough into a well oiled sheet pan, and let rise again until dough in size.
5) Begin preheating the oven.

7) Brush the top of the focaccia with avocado oil and then sprinkle liberally with rosemary or your preferred toppings.
8) Bake until golden brown, and then remove and let cool on a rack.
9) This bread reheats well so if you don’t need a full sheet pan, slice when cool, wrap well in plastic wrap, and then in either foil or a freezer bag, and freeze until needed. Defrost and reheat in a 350 degree oven.
