Macaroni Grill Foccacia Bread

You just have to make is so yummy and very easy to make! Everyone will want your recipe once they try it!

1 TBS yeast
1 TBS oil
1 TBS sugar
1 cup warm water
2 TBS margarine
2 cups flour
2 TBS dried rosemary
1 tsp salt

Place yeast, sugar and water in a large bowl or food processor and allow the mixture to become bubbly. Mix in 2 c of flour and salt and some sprinkles of rosemary (don't forget the salt!!) Knead for about 10 min until smooth and elastic (I SKIP THIS STEP because I'm lazy and it still turns out GREAT!) ; add more flour if necessary. Oil a bowl, put dough in it and cover with a towel. Let dough rise in a warm place for 1 -2 hr, or until doubled. Punch down dough and divide in half. Let the dough rest for a few minutes. Coat 2 9−in square cake pans with nonstick spray. Press dough into pans. Melt margarine. Brush margarine over the tops of the loaves. Sprinkle rosemary over the loaves and lightly press into the surface. Let the loaves rise again until doubled, about 1 - 2 hrs. Preheat oven to 450 F. Lightly sprinkle salt over the loaves. Bake for 10−15 min, until lightly browned.
