Sourdough Focaccia

1 1/3 cup starter
1/4 cup oil
2 tsp sugar
3/4 tsp salt
about 2 cups unbleached all purpose flour

Combine above ingredients, kneading in flour 1/2 cup at a time.
Let rise until double, punch down, and knead a little to let the
gases out. Let the dough relax for 10 minutes or so.

Roll the dough into an oval about 9" x 6" and place on baking
surface. The dough should be about an inch thick.

Make dents all over the surface of the dough. Pour on olive oil
liberally and spread it all around. It will pool in the dents.
Top with herbs and spices, and possibly parmesan. My current
favourite topping is simply lots of ground pepper, coarsely ground
salt, and ground garlic.

Let rise until double again, and bake at 450 F for 15 to 20 minutes,
or until brown and sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom. Placing
a pan of boiling water on a lower rack does no harm and may help
the final oven spring.
