Two Flavour Focaccia

There’s something so homey and warming with making your own bread at home. Making this two flavour focaccia bread for the first time was surprisingly easy and incredibly  good. The delicious aroma of the olive oil, rosemary, olives and tomatoes just swept my home all morning!

What you’ll need:

  • A good lug of olive oil
  • Toppings of your choice

Mix the flour, yeast, salt and sugar in a bowl and make a well in the centre. Pour in a cup of warm water and about 2 to 3 tablespoons of olive oil

When the dough has pulled together, turn it out into a lightly floured surface and knead and smooth and elastic. Drizzle with olive oil from time to time as you knead and keep dusting with flour when its get sticky.

Oil a large bowl and place the dough in once it’s smooth and elastic. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit for about an hour to an hour and a half until the dough has doubled in size. You’ll see that my dough has become soft and pillowy.

You can really go with any toppings you like. For my focaccia, I made two toppings- a cherry tomato and basil mix and a black olive and rosemary mix

For the cherry tomato and basil mix, mix halved cherry tomatoes, chopped basil leaves and sliced garlic in a bowl, drizzle with olive oil and apple cider vinegar. Season with sea salt and mix.focacciatomatoes focacciaprep1

As for the olive and rosemary mix, it is really just, plain and simple, black olives, fresh rosemary, a sprinkle of sea salt and a drizzle of olive oil all laid on top of the bread.focacciaolives focacciamade12 focacciamade11
