It's easy to whip up a batch of focaccia on account of this straightforward, six-ingredient recipe made with ingredients you likely have on hand. The dough — made with all-purpose flour, yeast and salt — must be kneaded for a few minutes and allowed to rest. It's then rolled out and placed on a baking sheet, brushed with a mixture of water and olive oil and liberally showered with Parmesan cheese. You could sprinkled it with chopped fresh or dried herbs, if desired.
- 450 grams flour
- 50 grams yeast
- 5 tablespoons olive oil
- 200 grams water
- grated parmesan cheese
- Combine the flour with the yeast, add 3 tablespoons of oil, 170 grams of water, 50 grams of cheese and 50 games of salt in a bowl, kneading the dough well.
- Place the dough onto a work surface and knead it well for 7 to 8 minutes.
- Return the dough to the bowl, greased with oil and set it aside to rise to double its size.
- When the dough has risen, place it on the work surface, shape it into a log, and place it on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
- Allow it to rest for 15 minutes. Then roll it out to cover the entire baking sheet by using a rolling pin and your hands. It is also possible to roll out the dough immediately after placing it on the baking sheet, but this will take more effort since the gluten is stronger and offers resistance.
- Let the dough rise in the baking sheet for 30 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
- Press your fingers into the dough completely and cover the dough with the water and oil mixture. Sprinkle the top with cheese and let it rise again completely, to more than double (approximately 1 ½ hours).
- Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
