Pass the marinara! This Amish Friendship Bread Focaccia recipe with crushed garlic, rosemary, olive oil and coarse sea salt is easy and delicious.

  1. Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl (if using a bread maker, add into bread maker pan and set to "dough" feature).

  2. Turn onto a floured board. Knead until a sticky dough ball is formed, adding additional flour as necessary.

  3. Place dough ball in an oiled mixing bowl and cover with plastic wrap. All to rise for 2 hours.

  4. Grease a rimmed baking sheet. Punch down dough and turn into baking sheet, evenly pressing dough to the sides of the sheet. If the dough pulls away, let it rest for few minutes before continuing.
