Onion & Garlic Vegan Focaccia

Light, fluffy and so tasty! I love bread and I used to eat a lot of it at one time, not so much anymore.
So I make this for special occasions and when I want a different pizza base just sliced in half.

3 Cups Plain Flour
1 med/large onion (Diced finely)
1 Cup warm Water
2 Tbsp Olive oil
2 tsp Sugar
1 tsp Salt
 2 tsp Yeast
4 large cloves Garlic (minced)
extra oil for garlic 

I made mine with the luxury of a bread maker on the Dough setting follow the directions of yours, If you don't have one, In a large bowl add all the ingredients except garlic and mix to form a dough. On a floured surface knead the dough for approx. 10mins till if becomes elastic like in texture, Spray the bowl it came out of with spray oil and pop it back in it, Cover with a cloth and sit it in a warm quiet place to prove for 1hr till it doubles in size, Punch the air out and on a greased cookie sheet place the dough and push it into a shape you like, Cover with lightly greased plastic wrap and cloth and set aside to rise again another 30mins while waiting for the final rise pop some oil and garlic into a pan and cook it through but don't burn it.... this is the glaze for the top of the focaccia, When the dough is ready press your fingers into the dough gently and spread the garlic oil all over the top finally sprinkle with chives if you like, Pop into a preheated oven 180C takes about 15-20mins or till golden.  Enjoy!   =)
