Sample Recipe: Rosemary and Fig Focaccia
Prep Time: 90 minutes / Bake Time: 30 minutes / Cooling Time: 5 minutes / Yield: About 15 servings
– Sprinkle the yeast over the warm water and let stand for about 5 minutes until it becomes frothy.
– Combine the flour, rosemary, sugar, and salt in the food processor and blend evenly.
– While blending, add ⅓ cup of the olive oil and the yeast mixture through the feed tube, until a soft sticky dough is formed.
– Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead several times to a soft, pliable dough. You may need a tablespoon or two of flour to make it less sticky.
– Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl covered with plastic wrap and place in a warm spot to double in size, for 45 to 60 minutes.
– Preheat the oven to 375ºF.
– Spray the sheet pan with cooking spray.
– Once the dough has doubled, stretch it to fit the sheet pan in an even layer. Brush the entire surface with the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil and layer with the chopped figs.
– Bake for about 30 minutes, or until golden brown.
– Cool slightly before slicing and serving.
