Sundried Tomato And Olive Focaccia

Sundried Tomato And Olive Focaccia

Posted 2017-04-25 by Naomi follow
Delicious and filled with bursts of flavour with sundried tomatoes and olives, this focaccia also smells great while baking. I use Parmesan cheese in the dough and sprinkle some on top for extra flavour.

This crowd pleaser can be served sliced for brunch, lunch, dinner, or at parties on an antipasto platter. It is a great side with pasta or soup.

Preparation Time: 1 hour 15 minutes (including time for the dough to rise)
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Serves: 1 focaccia, 12 generous slices

7 g instant yeast
1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes, cut
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1 tbsp tomato paste (optional)
3 tbsp olive oil
1 cup water, lukewarm

  • Turn the dough out on a lightly floured surface and knead for 10 minutes.
  • Put the dough into the pan, pushing out the sides so it fits. Set aside in a draught free place to rise until it has doubled in size. Mine took 55 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.
  • Sprinkle the remaining Parmesan cheese and pour the sundried tomato oil on top of the dough. Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown on top and a skewer comes out clean.
