Customizing preamble.tex in bookdown

I started using bookdown to generate a longer report, but came into some touble as I wanted to customize the pdf output.

\documentclass[]{}
does not work in the
preamble.tex
file. I think that comand is somehow executed by pandoc beforhand, unfortunately I did not find out how to pass options to it so far.

I worked around a few things like setting the fontsize via
\usepackage[12pt]{moresize}
but I was wondering how to acces the set up options properly. The bookdown documentation does not cover this subject in sufficient detail for me to understand.

Answer

Look at this BookDown Documentation,

You can just add following in your header yaml,

---
documentclass: book
bibliography: [book.bib, packages.bib]
biblio-style: apalike
