Copycat Punch Salad and Rosemary Focaccia
  • Rosemary Focaccia
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 package dry yeast (¼ oz)
  • 3 sprigs fresh rosemary, chopped
  • Olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¾ cup warm water
  1. Dissolve the yeast in ½ cup warm water and let sit 10 min until bubbly. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, salt and yeast mixture and remaining water. Mix well with a wooden spoon and then use your hands. Then knead by hand on a floured work surface for a few minutes.
  2. Put the dough mixture into a well oiled bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let it sit out for about 1.5 hrs until it’s risen to double it’s size.
  3. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Oil a baking sheet and form the dough into a circle or oval onto the baking sheet. Use a rolling pin to make it thin. Dimple the top all over with the tip of a utensil or your finger. Drizzle with olive oil, salt and rosemary. Bake for 15-20 min until it’s just starting to get barely golden. Careful not to overbake. Slice with a pizza cutter into 8 slices. Serve with the punch salad.
