Recipe was created for Hofer Slovenia.
Finally some bright and vibrant colors on our tables. Focaccia is not just one good looking lady on the spot, but also a delicious bite. I improved my previous recipe a bit and my good friend who tested my both recipes confirmed that this one is a winner. Yay, we got this!
It is such a simple recipe for so much outcome. Focaccia is easy to make and I promise that everyone will love it. And you can feed more people at once, that is very convenient sometimes.
There are small tricks that can improve the focaccia taste. Like best quality Extra-Virgin olive oil, and coarse salt with larger grains.
What I love about focaccia is that it is like a painter canvas. You can explore and play with different vegetables, herbs and edible flowers. It is really a “wow” moment when you put it on the table in front of your guests. And which cook doesn’t like to have a moment like this from time to time?
You can watch the video here below or follow the steps in classic text recipe version:
- 400 g all-purpose flour
- 1 pack dry yeast 7 g
- 1 tsp salt coarse salt
- 300 ml lukewarm water
- 5 tbsp olive oil
- Sift the flour into a large bowl.
- Add yeast and salt.
- Make a hole in the middle of the flour and add three tablespoons of oil and lukewarm water.
- Roughly mix with a wooden spoon, then knead by hand until smooth. If necessary, add flour to prevent the dough from sticking together.
- Put one tablespoon of olive oil in a baking pan and spread it.
- Place the loaf on the baking sheet and stretch it to the edge with your fingers. Cover with a cloth and leave to rise for about an hour.
- Heat the oven to 200 °C.
- While the dough is rising, prepare the decoration for the focaccia.
- If we want to do something more artistic, I suggest that you first assemble the elements on a plate and then transfer them to the focaccia.
- Before baking, coat the top of the vegetables with olive oil.
- Bake for 15 minutes at 200 °C.
