Foccacia a la pizza


Ok ok, this is the last terrible photo because this evening my dearest husband bought a new camera for me. So from now on arts begins... :)

And this is one more Italian dish which was supposed to be Foccacia, i.e. Italian flat bread with olives and tomatoes on the top. But I added cheese and rosemary, so now it can be called foccacia a la pizza or something like that! :D

For the dough you need:

7 gm  dry yeast

250 ml ( 1 water glass) lukewarm water

1 tsp sugar

350 gm ( 2 glasses) whole wheat flour or all purpose flour

1 tsp salt

1 tsp dried oregano

20 ml extra virgin olive oil

What we have to do:

1. In luke warm water, add sugar and dry yeast. Cover it and leave for the yeast to activate.

2. Sift flour, add salt, oregano and oil to flour and mix well. Once yeast becomes foamy, add it to flour mixture and make a dough.

3.Knead it for about 10 min. Let it rest for 30-40 minutes. In 30 minutes, it should double its original size. 

4. Oil a baking tray and place the dough and shape it with your palms. Add the topping. I used olives, cherry tomatoes, white and yellow cheese and rosemary.

5. Bake it for about 25 min in 180C. Enjoy!!!
