Focaccia Fun

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

So I've decided to test out my Galaxy Nexus's time-lapse ability by recording the process of making focaccia bread. This delicious Italian style bread is not only easy it's incredibly delicious so give it a shot! Recipe after the jump or check out the video, share it with your fellow baking buddies and keep on milling those grains! More videos to come!

Ingredients
3.75 cu flour
8 oz water
2 tbs oil
1 tbs salt
1 tbs yeast
kosher salt & toppings
 (this could be whatever you want! I like rosemary or olives & garlic)


Procedure
Mix the dry ingredients well, add the water and oil then combine until all the flour is soaked up. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and kneed. Eventually you'll get a moist dough ball that won't stick to your hands but is still tacky. Continue to kneed for a time then place the dough ball in a well oiled bowl, cover and let sit in a warm place until at least doubled in size.

Turn out the dough, release the air bubbles gently and reform into a dough ball. Let the ball bench rest, covered, for thirty minutes to an hour. Once the dough is ready, preheat the oven to 475 F. Shape the dough into a large disc and paint the top with olive oil, sprinkle on kosher salt and toppings then place it on the hot Ceramic Pizza Stone (a pizza peel makes this easier; buy one, make one or you can use a wooden cutting board instead). Cook until the top is hard, remove, let cool and cut into desired pieces.


Enjoy with friends!
