Mini Focaccia

world bread day '06

So I know this post is a day late... but I did bake this bread yesterday, officially on World Bread Day. ;-)

I decided to make my handy ol' stand-by, mini-Focaccia. I would usually make this with olives, but alas... I had none. So I improvised and used misc dried herbs, and some caramelized onions & garlic.


3 cups flour
1 cup tepid water
3 T olive oil
1 packet instant dry yeast
2 t salt


In a large bowl combine flour, salt, any herbs you would like and yeast. Make a well in the center and add water and olive oil. With your hands combine until you have a nice springy dough. Toss onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 5 minutes. Place dough in a greased bowl and cover to rise for 1 hour. Knock back down and form into 4 small dough balls. Place whatever toppings on top you prefer, onions, olives, tomatoes, sea salt (always sea salt!), cheese, your imagination is the limit! Drizzle with olive oil. Cover and let rise again for 30 mins. Bake in a 375 degree oven until they start turning golden. Enjoy with some herbed olive oil!

We enjoyed this bread last night with some of my chicken piccata. =)
