Rosemary, Olive and Garlic Focaccia

Here's another one of my favorite recipes using store bought White Bread Dough. Most grocery stores sell ready made bread Dough, ask at the Bakery and they will weigh out as much as you need. They don't often keep a lot so its best to phone and order the day before or get there early.
