  From:   Ted Taylor
  
  The following recipe is for "focaccia Romana," or Roman focaccia,
  from Jeff Smith's "The Frigal Gourmet Cooks Three Ancient Cuisines."
  He recommends it as the best dough for a pizza crust he's run across,
  and I must say it is both
  
  very easy and VERY good to eat.  I halved the following recipe (but
  used the full amount of garlic, plus 2 c of meaty red sauce, about 4
  oz. of pepperoni, 8-9 fresh mushrooms and 8 ounces of whole-milk
  mozzarella) and the results were great. Lacking quick-rise yeast, I
  used regular yeast and just ate a little later -- no problem there.
  And of course, I made the dough into a pizza instead of a plain
  focaccia (which is like a thick pizza (also round, but thicker) but
  without toppings.
  
  Dissolve the yeast in the tepid water.  Add the sugar, olive oil,
  oil, and salt.  Mix in 3 c of the flour and whip until the dough
  begins to leave the sides of the mixing bowl, about ten minutes [!!].
  I [Smith] use my KitchenAid mixer for the whole process.
  
  Mix in the remaining flour by hand or with a dough hook and knead the
  dough until it is smooth.  Allow the dough to rise twice, right in
  the bowl, and punch down after each rising.
  
  Oil 2 baking sheets, each 13 inches by 18 inches, and divide the dough
  between the 2 pans.  Using your fingers, press the dough out to the
  edges of each pan. Allow to rise for about 30 minutes and brush with
  the crushed garlic mixed with the oil for topping. Sprinkle the
  rosemary and kosher salt on top.
  
  Bake at 375 degrees for about 30 minutes.
