Description

Make a tray of these focaccia rolls for a crowd — the basic yeast dough, which is topped with a mixture of pesto, ricotta, tomato and Parmesan, is no trouble to make. Although they need time to rise, the rolls bake in just 15 minutes, so you can throw them in the oven once guests arrive. They'll make up flaky inside with a crusty exterior. Serve them hot from the oven with a glass of wine.

Ingredients

45 grams yeast
280 grams water
500 grams all-purpose flour
10 grams salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
250 grams pesto sauce
300 grams ricotta cheese
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon tomato paste
3 tablespoons parmesan cheese

Directions

1Dissolve the yeast in a bowl with some water, and then add some flour, olive oil, and salt. Mix well. Add the remaining flour and water alternatively. Form the dough and knead until smooth.
2Place the dough on a floured work surface and knead for 7 to 8 minutes. Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl. Place the bowl in a warm place and allow it to rise until it doubles its size.
3Place the dough on the work surface again and shape it into two loaves. Allow it to rest for 15 minutes and then roll it out into two rectangles. Use a rolling pin, as well as the palm of your hand, to roll it out to a thickness of 1/2 centimeter.
4Use a round pastry cutter to cut out the rolls and place them on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, leaving some space between each one. Let the rolls rise for 30 minutes.
5Combine the pesto sauce in a bowl with the ricotta cheese, tomato paste, oil and Parmesan cheese.
6Press your fingers into dough and place a small amount of topping on each roll.
7Let the rolls rise again to double their size, about 90 minutes.
8Preheat oven to 190 degrees Celsius.
9Bake for approximately 13 to 15 minutes. Serve warm.
