Continue to work the dough in the bowl. As it starts to come together, add the remaining water a little bit at a time to help pick up any flour remaining in the bowl.
Lightlyflour a work surface and knead the dough for seven-ten minutes. You will know you are done when the dough is smooth and no longer stick to your hands.
Lightlyoil a bowl, place the dough in the bowl, and cover until the dough has doubled in size. This step takes one-two hours, but should not exceed two hours.

Grape, Pear and Blue Cheese Focaccia Bread by lifeonwesterlycreek on Jumprope.
Recipe Notes:Baking Dish: This recipe will fit best into a 9x13 baking dish. I recommend using a rimmed baking sheet or dish. However, the baking time can vary depending on the baking equipment. You will know when the bread is complete by the golden color. Storing: * Focaccia will keep at room temperature or in the refrigerator. Cover the bread with plastic wrap, for 2 days. If you would like it warm, reheat in the oven at 375 for ten minutes. * To freeze, wrap in cling wrap and place in a zip lock freezer bag. The focaccia will store in a freezer for up to one month. Additional toppings: * I like to have this bread with arugula on top and eat it as a meal. Other popular toppings include herbs (rosemary), goat cheese, and thinly sliced meats. Have fun experimenting with different toppings.
