Food Processor Method - Place the focaccia dough ingredients into a food processor with a dough blade attached. Turn on low setting until the dough ingredients combine and form a ball.
Stand Mixer Method - Combine Focaccia Dough ingredients, except 2 1/2 cups flour, in mixing bowl with paddle or beaters for 4 minutes on medium speed. Using a dough hook, gradually add remaining flour and knead for 5 to 7 minutes until smooth and elastic.
Place dough ball in a lightly oiled bowl and turn to oil top. Cover with plastic wrap for 30 minutes or until dough doubles in size. Dough is ready when you stick 2 fingers in it and the indentations remain. This is referred to as 'ripe.'
Place dough on a lightly oiled sheet pan and press down to fit the shape of the pan. With a fork, poke holes all over the dough.
In a bowl, combine the 3 Oil Baste ingredients. NOTE: This can be made in advance. Brush this 'baste' over top of dough and spread out the basil and garlic mixture. Sprinkle with sea salt.
Place in a preheated 400 degrees F oven for 20 minutes and/or the dough is brown on bottom. Remove & cool.
Cut focaccia into 24 pieces. Spread each piece with the sun dried tomato spread. Place on each piece 1 teaspoon sliced pecans, 2 pieces of artichoke hearts, 2 black olive halves, 1 shrimp and place a cheese strip down the middle of the focaccia.
Place the Seriously Sharp Shrimp Focaccia pieces under the broiler until cheese starts to melt.
Remove and serve.
