Focaccia is a flat oven-baked Italian bread. It is similar in style and texture to pizza doughs. It may be topped with onions, olives, herbs or sauces. I often make it from scratch. . . but for an easy focaccia follow the steps.
Focaccia – Quick and Easy
- Difficulty Level Easy
- 1 loaf of Bridgeford™ Bread Dough (they come 3 to a package)
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- Sliced onion – use about ¼ of a medium sized onion
- Garlic Salt or Coarse Sea Salt
- Place 1 frozen bread loaf on a well –oiled, large baking pan (or use the bottom of your oven baking pan)
- Drizzle extra virgin olive oil on top of the frozen loaf
- As the bread dough thaws*, flatten the loaf out with your hands several times adding more olive oil each time you flatten the loaf
- When the bread dough is completely thawed (about 3 hours, smooth it out to the edge of the pan and make fingerprint “wells” in the dough (really fun for you or the kids)
- Place thinly sliced white onion on the top of the dough
- Sprinkle lightly with garlic salt or coarse sea salt and a bit more olive oil
- Cook at 350° for about 20 minutes
- Remove from oven and immediately drizzle more extra virgin olive oil on the top and brush the oil over the entire surface
- Let it cool for a few minutes and cut into squares
- *The dough will take about 3 hours to rise. I usually put one loaf of frozen bread in the refrigerator overnight. In the morning, I follow the directions above.
