"This is my second order for your oregano and I would like to say that it is the "BEST" I have ever used. It is better, much better, than my own home grown oregano. I want to thank you people for a superior product that I absolutely love and so do the friends I share it with...God Bless"   Charles W.,  Plainville, Connecticut
Angela's Italian and Sicilian Recipes
Focaccia con Pepe e Olio di Tartufo
Pepper Focaccia with Truffle Oil
(Focaccia con Pepe e Olio di Tartufo)

2 cups lukewarm water (85 F to 95 F)
1 tablespoon active dry yeast (for do-ahead version) or quick-rising dry yeast (for same-day version)
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons white or black truffle oil* or extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon cracked black pepper
2 teaspoons salt
4 and 3/4 cups (about) bread flour
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
2 teaspoons coarse sea salt
Stir 2 cups lukewarm water and yeast in large bowl to blend.

Mix in 3 tablespoons olive oil, truffle oil, cracked pepper, and 2 teaspoons salt.

Add 1 cup flour.

Using wood spoon, stir vigorously until well incorporated.

Add enough of remaining 3 and 3/4 cups flour, about 1/2 cup at a time, to form dough that is soft, sticky and not completely smooth, stirring vigorously until well incorporated.

Oil large bowl.

Scrape dough into oiled bowl. Cover bowl with plastic wrap.

For Do-Ahead Version:
Chill dough overnight.

Allow dough to come to room temperature in warm draft-free area before proceeding.

For Same-Day Version:
Let dough rise in warm draft-free area until doubled in volume, about 45 minutes (do not punch down dough).

Lightly oil 15 x 10 x 1-inch baking sheet.

Slide out dough onto prepared baking sheet (dough will be soft and will easily slide out onto sheet; do not punch down dough or knead dough).

Gently pull and stretch dough so that dough almost covers baking sheet.

Press fingertips all over top of dough to form indentations.

Brush top of focaccia with remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil.

Sprinkle with thyme, rosemary and coarse salt.

Cover loosely with plastic wrap.

Let rise in warm draft-free area until puffed, about 30 minutes for refrigerated dough and about 15 minutes for room-temperature dough.

Meanwhile, position rack in center of oven and preheat to 450 F.

Bake focaccia until deep golden brown, about 30 minutes.

Transfer to rack and cool. Makes 1 large loaf.

Note: *Available at Italian markets, specialty foods stores and some supermarkets.
