Onion Focaccia

Standard

I made this last weekend for lunch.  We had it as a sandwich but it can be served with dips.  You can change the toppings to your liking. This is also from my bread book which is called the The Bread and Bread Machine Bible.Onion Focaccia 2

Ingredients

  • 1 cup waterOnion Focaccia 1
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cups unbleached white bread flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp granulated sugarOnion Focaccia 4
  • 7g/1 sachet dried yeast
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh sage
  • 1 tbsp chopped red onion

For the topping

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 red onion thinly sliced
  • 5 Fresh sage leaves
  • 2 tsp coarse sea salt
  • coarsely ground black pepper

Method

Place flour, salt, sugar and dried yeast in a large bowl: mix.  Add water and oil and mix into a dough. Remove the dough from the bowl onto a floured surface and knead for 4 mins.  Shape the dough into a ball and cover with oiled plastic and leave for 5 mins. Meanwhile  lightly oil a shallow 25-28 cm shallow round tin.

Knock the dough back (punch it down)and flatten it slightly. Sprinkle over sage and onion and knead gently to incorporate. Shape the dough into a ball, flatten it and roll into a round of about 25-28 cm. Place in prepared tin, cover with oiled plastic wrap and leave to rise in a warm place for 20 mins.

Preheat oven to 200 Deg C. Uncover the focaccia, and using your fingertips poke the dough to make deep dimples. Cover and leave to rise for another 10 mins or until it has doubled in bulk.

Drizzle olive oil and sprinkle with sage and onions, sea salt and pepper.

Bake for 20-25 mins until golden. Serve warm.
