Easiest Focaccia Bread

This is without doubt one of the easiest recipes on focaccia bread that you might find on the internet. It only takes a few minutes to make the dough and if you would like to advance a bit, you can add roasted walnuts or semi-dried tomatoes together with the herbs 🙂

Most often we use the bread for sandwiches, but it is also great for tapas and/or to bring on a picnic with friends and family.

Ingredients (1 bread)

1 tbsp. active yeast

1 cup wheat flour

1 cup durrum flour

1 cup water

1 tbsp. coarse salt

6 tbsp. olive oil

1 tbsp. fresh thyme or rosemary leaves

1 tsp. sea salt

 

Dissolve the yeast into the water and add both flour types together with the coarse salt and half of the olive oil. Knead until the dough is smooth – it should be moist, but not sticky.

Place the dough in a greased bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let raise to double size, approximately one hour.

Form the raised dough into a ball and place it on a piece of baking paper. Pour the remaining olive oil over the dough and use your fingers to form the bread. It should end up being approximately 1 inch thick.

 

Sprinkle with your choice of herbs and cover the bread with a dishcloth. Let raise for additional 45-60 minutes.

Sprinkle the sea salt on top of the bread and bake in the oven at 480F for 18 minutes.

Use for sandwiches, tapas or whenever you feel like eating a good home baked bread 🙂
