I couldn’t wait. As promised, after we watched the first episode of Salt Fat Acid Heat (why are the episodes not in the order of the words in the title?), all I could think about was making focaccia. Ok maybe more all I could think about was eating focaccia, because the filming of the episode was so lovely and the language used with the imagery was just so compelling, I NEEDED to experience salty, oily-in-a-good-way bread ASAP.
The obvious hiccup being that I 1. don’t bake and 2. have literally never made anything with yeast. Ever. And if we’re being honest, 37 weeks pregnant with a messy house and full-time toddler and part-time job is really not the time to get all LET’S TRY NEW THINGS. Having a second child is new enough. Eating bread was the goal. Luckily, I had a package of pizza dough in the fridge that had all but tripled in size in the few days it had been in my fridge. Tripled! I bought it on a whim thinking that I’d make pizza for Beck as a treat, but I hadn’t done so yet or told her about it, so I took to the interwebs to see if other people make focaccia with pizza dough.
