Focaccia is an Italian oil-based bread which is usually flat and square-shaped. This focaccia is infused with rosemary, garlic, and juicy sun-dried tomatoes with salt and pepper to taste and a light sprinkle of vegan parmesan cheese. People find making dough and bread hard, but this recipe is foolproof. All you have to worry about is what flavor you want your focaccia!

Preparation

  1. Place the warm water into a bowl, and sprinkle in the yeast and sugar. Cover with a tea towel then put into a warm place for around 10-15 minutes until frothy.
  2. In a seperate large bowl, combine the flours, oil and salt.
  3. Add in the activated yeast mixture to the flour mix.
  4. Mix with a hand whisk or attach a dough hook to your stand mixer and begin to knead on medium until smooth dough forms. This will take around 5 minutes. Add more oil or water if needed.
  5. Pop the dough into a lightly oiled bowl, cover with a tea towel and place into a warm area (I place mine in my conservatory) and allow to prove for around 2-3 hours or until double in size.
  6. Grease a deep baking tray with oil.
  7. Once the dough has doubled in size, turn it out into the oiled tray and stretch/press out the dough until it reaches the edges covering the base of the pan. Make sure its level.
