HERB FOCACCIA BREAD

1 loaf frozen bread dough
2 tbsp (25 mL) olive oil
1/8 tsp (0.5 mL) salt, optional
1/2 tsp (2 mL) freshly ground pepper
1/2 tsp (2 mL) oregano
1/2 tsp (2 mL) basil
1/4 tsp (1 mL) thyme

Place frozen bread dough and oil in a heavy plastic bag. Squeeze bag to coat dough with oil. Seal and place in refrigerator to thaw overnight. Combine remaining ingredients using a mortar and pestle until crushed and blended. Place thawed bread dough and oil on a large sheet of foil. Flatten dough and sprinkle with herb mixture. Place another sheet of foil on top. Roll out dough into an oblong about 1/2 inch (1.25 cm) thick. Remove top sheet of foil. Flip dough directly onto barbecue grid, foil side up. Remove foil. Cook bread over medium heat on natural gas barbecue for 3 - 5 minutes per side. Serve warm. Serves 6.
