Focaccia with olives, tomatoes and rosemary – Step by step recipe
Put the flour in a bowl with the salt, sugar and yeast. Mix, then add 2 tablespoons of oil and slowly add 350ml of warm water, stirring until it becomes a sticky dough.
Turn over onto a floured worktop and knead for 5-10 minutes, adding a little more flour if it gets too sticky. Place in a clean bowl and cover with a kitchen towel. Let stand for about 1-1 hours or until doubled in size.
Grease a baking sheet or muffin tin (about 20 x 30 cm) with oil. Add the dough and spread it around the edges. Make dimples on it with your fingers and sprinkle with tomatoes, olives, rosemary, and sea salt. Leave it for 30-45 minutes to prove and double the size.
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Drizzle the tops with 1 tablespoon olive oil and bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden and cooked through. Cut into squares and serve with extra olive oil for dipping.
For extra flavor, crush the feta on top before baking. Store bread in an airtight container for up to two days.
Focaccia offers the opportunity to pair a lighter shade of red, like this little-known beauty from Puglia in southern Italy. I love the fruit and the elegant aftertaste. On very hot days, you can serve this red wine even if it is slightly cold.
