Focaccia Bread

This recipe uses a YEAST dough, but you don’t have to wait for it to rise or do any kneading…REALLY.

 You can find the original recipe HERE from My Imperfect Kitchen.

Ingredients:

2 cups flour

1 cup lukewarm water (105 – 110 degrees)

1 tsp. dry yeast

1 tsp. sugar

1 tsp. salt

oil for the pan

 

Begin by adding the yeast and sugar to the 1 cup of warm water.

Let stand for 5 minutes, until foamy.

 

Then combine the yeast and water mixture with the flour and salt…

Mixing the focaccia dough

Pour some oil to cover the bottom of an 8X8 square pan and then

place the dough into the pan and poke holes in the dough.

You can use your fingers or a knife.

The dough will be sticky, don’t worry…

Now at this point you pour more oil, a tablespoon or two

all over the top of your dough.

You want the oil to work its way through the holes.

 

Add your favorite spices and Parmesan cheese

and bake in a hot (450) oven until golden brown.

 

This is the way I made it the first time.

It was DELICIOUS.

The bottom crust was so crispy from the oil

seeping through the holes…

The second time I made the focaccia, I decided to top it with a simple tomato salad.

 

I sliced up some tomatoes, added garlic, parsley, basil, salt and pepper.

Then I added some Italian dressing and placed the tomato salad

in the refrigerator for a few hours to “marry” the flavors together.

 

You can find detailed instructions HERE on how to make the tomato salad…

After you have poked the holes in the dough, cover with oil again, only

not as much oil this time because of the salad dressing in the tomato salad…

Add the tomato salad and top with mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese…

Bake in a hot oven until nicely browned…
