This light Italian flat bread is prepared from a soft dough enriched with olive oil. Extra olive oil is traditionally sprinkled over the dough before baking – sometimes in generous quantities – but this recipe uses just enough to give a good texture and flavour. Focaccia makes an ideal accompaniment to Italian meats, cheeses and salads.
Semolina gives this pizza base more stability and a crispy, chewy texture when cooked.
This easy focaccia is fantastic with a drizzle of olive oil and balsamic vinegar and a little grated Parmesan.
Take five minutes today to make the starter, and tomorrow you can bake two loaves of this marvellous, slightly sour, rustic Italian bread. You don't have to use a baking stone to cook the bread, but I like to.
This is a bread machine version of the Italian classic. I make it about three times a week!
