mini cheese-stuffed focaccia

This is a soft pizza dough that I make with mashed potatoes, sooo yummy! (This is the very first cooking video I ever made, don't judge.)
3 C flour
1 Tbs yeast
1 tsp salt
1 C mashed potatoes
In a large bowl mix flour and salt, create a well and sprinkle in yeast. Add 1 C warm water and let sit 10 minutes. Add mashed potato and stir into a soft dough. Knead a few minutes till a smooth ball is formed. Return to the bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let rise as room temp 1 hr, or microwave 30 seconds and let sit in the microwave for 5 min. If making a pizza divide into 4 pieces and spread out onto a hot pizza stone, add toppings and bake at 400 for about 10 min.
1/2 C cream cheese
1/2 C parmesan cheese
1/4 C fresh chopped basil
3 cloves garlic
2 Tbs olive oil
Saute garlic in oil, add to a small bowl with cheeses and basil. Stir together and add salt and pepper. Prepare dough from above. After rising spread dough onto a lightly floured surface and spread into a rectangle 1/4-1/2" thick. Cut into 8 rectangles with pizza cutter. Place a spoonful of cheese filling onto each rectangle and spread over 1/2 of te rectangle. Fold over and press sides together to seal in filling. Arrange on a pizza stone or cookie sheet, make indentations on top with fingertips. Brush with additional olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt. Bake 10-12 min at 375 until lightly browed.
