Sundried Tomato & Onion Focaccia

There’s something about focaccia bread that keeps me coming back. There are so many possible topping choices, the olive oil and saltiness. I just can’t get enough. Be sure to use the best possible olive oil you can. It makes a difference. Better yet, use some of the oil from the tomatoes. This recipe is perfect to start on an afternoon & have ready by dinner.

Sundried Tomato & Onion Focaccia

Preparation: 20 min to prepare, 1-1.5 hours to rise, 30 min 2nd rise, 30-25 min bake

Ingredients

  • 2 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 packet of yeast (2 1/4 tsp)
  • 1 cup warm water (105 to 115 degrees)
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

Topping

  • 16 pieces, Sundried Tomatoes soaked in Olive Oil
  • 3 tbsp Onion, diced
  • 1/2 tsp coarse salt
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

Method

  1. Pour warm cup of water in mixing bowl. Add sugar then sprinkle yeast into the water. Let stand for 5 minutes. Yeast will be foamy.
  2. Stir oil and salt into yeast water mixture.
  3. Add flour spoon by spoon until a ball of dough forms.
  4. On a floured surface, knead dough until smooth and elastic. About 10 minutes. If the dough is too sticky, add a tbsp or 2 of flour.
  5. In a large oiled bowl, place dough inside, and cover with plastic wrap in warm location for 1 to 1.5 hours. Dough will double in size.
  6. Grease two 9-inch cake pans with a bit of olive oil. Punch dough down and split into 2 balls. Put in greased pans. Cover for 15 minutes.
  7. Pat dough down into pans evenly and let rest another 15 min.
  8. Heat oven to 450°F.
  9. Make dimples on the dough surface with your fingers and add a bit of olive oil, place a sundried tomato inside and sprinkle with salt and onions.
  10. Bake in oven for 10 minutes, reduce heat to 400°F and bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown.
  11. Place on rack to cool slightly then slice!
