Description

Focaccia is a traditional Italian oven-baked flatbread. It can be topped with fresh herbs or other ingredients for more adventurous eaters. This homemade focaccia is topped with fresh vine-ripened tomatoes and thinly sliced Spanish Manchego cheese in addition to a variety of fresh herbs for extra flavor. With a bake time of just 15 minutes, you will have two beautiful focaccia loaves in just one hour. The Manchego cheese can easily be substituted for another cheese of your choosing.

Ingredients

275 milliliters water
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
475 grams bread flour
1 teaspoon sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons active dry yeast (instant)
cherry tomatoes
fresh thyme
manchego cheese (sliced very thinly)
sea salt
ground black pepper
olive oil

Directions

1In a stand mixer, add the ingredients in this order: water, olive oil, salt, bread flour, sugar, and yeast. Add the bread attachment and start the kneading process.
2In the meantime, line a baking tray with parchment paper.
3Once the dough has come together, pour it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead by hand a few times to make a ball. Cut the ball in half.
4Roll each half out to make a rectangle or oval shape. The dough should be about a finger’s width thick. Along the length of the oval, press your fingertips in to make depressions and transfer the oval onto the baking tray.
5Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
6Using quantities that you prefer, sprinkle on top of the focaccia the whole cherry tomatoes, fresh thyme, Manchego cheese slices, salt, and pepper, and finish with a drizzle of olive oil.
7Let the dough rest 10 minutes.
8Bake 15 minutes until golden.
