This Easy Rosemary Garlic Focaccia Recipe is a great summer side dish for beginner bakers
500g all purpose flour
1 pinch salt
2 tbs oil
sliced cherry tomatoes
Combine sugar and water. Bring water to boil until sugar is dissolved completely. Allow water to become lukewarm. Add yeast in water. Mix it nicely to dissolve in water. Set it aside for 5 – 10 minutes to froth. Combine flour and salt in a mixing bowl or in a stand mixer. Now pour yeast mixture in small batches and form a smooth dough.The dough will be sticky. Do not add more flour. Add olive oil. Knead the dough for 3 – 5 minutes. It will become non-sticky. In a stand mixer, you can churn it at high speed for 2 – 3 minutes.
Grease a large, spacious bowl with olive oil. Transfer the dough to the bowl. Cover it with a tight fitting lid. Keep the bowl in a warm place such as inside the oven or microwave for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven, Bake focaccia for 20 minutes in the middle rack of the oven until golden on top. Transfer to a wire rack to cool down a bit. Brush with olive oil. Cut focaccia into squares and enjoy!
