This is a great recipe! So simple, and easy to follow. No guessing here! I've tried a few focaccia recipes on this site, and I like this one for the great directions. Plus it doesn't use a bread machine, as so many other recipes on here do. My only complaint is that it doesn't make enough! :) I will double the recipe next time, as this one was gone in no time here (and it's just me, my hubby, and my two kids- a 3 yr. old and a one yr. old!) I almost passed this recipe up before because it looked too simple, but that was easily modified by adding a teapsoon of Italian Seasoning herb blend, and 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder. I used half whole wheat for this recipe. Served with Slow Cooker Creamy Potato Soup. I'm glad I tried this recipe; I will be making it again!
Well, it rose nicely the first time. Much less so on the 2nd rise. So it was much thinner than I would have liked - about 1/2" total. Could be because I rolled it too thin. Also, it seemed really bland.
This was not difficult at all to make. It was worth the work. The seven minutes of kneading really paid off. I topped it with chopped garlic and fresh rosemary, and baked it on the pizza stone. My husband practically ate the whole thing himself.
This bread is just as the title says "Fantastic". I quadrupled it, the amount of yeast I used was 1 1/2 teas. of SAF brand yeast. I dimpled the surface of the bread and poured on the olive oil and then put on pieces of roasted red and yellow pepper and then sprinkled with Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper. It was too good!!!
I used my KitchenAid mixer with the dough hook to do the kneading, and even so, it took quite a bit longer than 7 minutes to make the dough soft. I also added an Italian mix of spices as the mixer kneaded. Before putting it in the oven, I spread kosher salt on top of the olive oil. Interestingly my dough did not rise very much, even after the first rise, and I was concerned that it would be rock-like, but I saw another very similar recipe, which recommended the second rising be only 30 minutes, so I followed those directions since my bread didn't seem to be rising anyway. I am pleased to report, that in the end, the bread was quite tasty. I'll be making it again.
A fantastic, EASY focaccia recipe. I baked it straight onto the Pizza stone. I also shaped the dough after it had risen and placed on top garlic, rosemary, basil and some fresh parmesan cheese.
Simply delicious! My first bread using yeast, I can't seem to bake enough because everyone wants to try it! I added herbs the second time around - a tsp each of oregano, rosemary, basil, thyme, and garlic salt (omitting the other salt). I prefer it herbed but it was tasty any way I made it! I'm already looking forward to making more.
My husband made this for me. He could not beleive how easy it was to do! He sprinkeled the top with Mrs. Dash Gallant Garlics classic Italiano. Then made it into a Portabello Mushroom sandwich to die for! Thanks for the recipe! It will be a staple in my house! Jen
