A delicious and simple focaccia bread, good for every moment of the day!
I love this focaccia bread.

The making of it is simple and quick, but it needs to rise so it takes a while.

I use fresh yeast, but I guess you can use dry yeast too, however I don't know if the quantity is the same or there's a different proportion!

I used a Pyrex pan to bake it, but you can use whatever pan you want :)

I will add picture to the steps as soon as I make it again :D

  • Step 1

    Combine flour with crumbled yeast, and with sugar and salt

  • Step 2

    Add little by little warm water (it has to be warm, NOT hot!!) and olive oil

  • Step 3

    Knead the dough very well for at least 5 minutes. If it's too dry add a little water, if it's too wet add a little flour. It has to be elastic and not sticky

  • Step 4

    Put the dough in the oven (it has to be turned off and not hot, obviously!) for two hours, until it duplicates

  • Step 5

    While the dough rises, slice mozzarella and let it drain, and slice potatoes. Potatoes slices have to be VERY thin, like chips! :)

    Oil the pan with a little olive oil

  • Step 6

    When the dough is ready, take it and roll it. Put it in the oiled pan, and press it gently with your fingertips. You have to create "dots" on it :) be careful not to break, you just have to "emboss" the dough!

  • Step 7

    Put on the dough the mozzarella slices, then put the potatoes slices on top of mozzarella

  • Step 8

    Let the focaccia bread rise again for half an hour

  • Step 9

    When the focaccia bread is rised, reheat your oven at 180°C, and while the oven is heating spread the top of the potatoes with a little oil, rosemary leaves and a little salt

  • Step 10

    Put the focaccia bread in the oven for 20/25 minutes, or until it's light brown
    (it can takes more or less time, it depends of your oven: with my gas oven it took 30/35 minutes at medium-high temperature)

  • Step 11

    Enjoy it!!
