My first Reinhart Foccacia

My first foccacia from "Bread Baker's Apprentice".  I followed the recipe exactly.....mixed and stretch/folded three times.  I didn't put it in the refrigerator overnight per the instructions....The dough was supposed to swell, but my dough was doubling.....so I formed it and put just a little tomato sauce, parsely/garlic pesto, onions, just a sprinkling of cheese, and a drizzle of olive oil on the bottom and top because I didn't have the herbs for herb oil...looks a bit like an overgrown pizza, but the toppings are just there for flavor....I added 4 oz. of whole wheat flour also........I'll share with co-workers tomorrow.......
