ROASTED GARLIC FOCACCIA BREAD

Ingredients.
pizza dough (enough for one large pizza)
1 head garlic
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
flour
cornmeal
kosher salt
fleur de sel (optional)

Directions.
Place your pizza stone in the oven (if you don’t have one, skip this step). Preheat the oven to 375° F.

For roasting the garlic, cut off the top 1/3 or 1/2 of the head of garlic, exposing all the cloves. Place the garlic on two square sheets of aluminum foil and pour the olive oil over the head of garlic. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt. Seal up the aluminum foil and place it on a small cookie sheet. Roast in the oven for 1-1 1/4 hour, until the garlic is golden and fragrant. Allow to cool and gently remove the whole cloves of garlic using a sharp paring knife or spoon. Pour the garlicky olive oil into a small bowl and set aside.

Increase the oven tempurature to 450° F. Place the pizza dough on a lightly floured surface. Gently stretch it into a large pizza-like shape. Press 1/3 of the garlic cloves into surface of the dough, spaced randomly. Fold the dough over once. Press the surface of the dough several times with your finger tips. Press another 1/3 of the garlic cloves into the top of the dough, spaced randomly. Fold over again, create indents with your finger tips again. Tuck the last 1/3 of the garlic cloves into the top of the dough.

Sprinkle a tiny bit of cornmeal on a piece of parchment paper and place the dough on top of the cornmeal. Place on a cookie sheet or directly on your pizza stone and cook the bread for 20-30 minutes until it’s golden brown and firm to touch. Remove from the oven and pour the garlicky olive oil over the top of the bread. Sprinkle with a bit of fleur de sel or finishing salt. Enjoy!
