Ingredients

Focaccia

  • 300 gms – 2 cups Healthy Baker low fodmap plain flour
  • 200 ml – ¾ cup + 1 ½ tbsp water lukewarm
  • 100 gms – 3 ½ oz. potato boiled and mashed
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • 5 gms – 1 ¾ tsp dry active yeast
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 15 ml – 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Toppings

  • Green olives halved
  • Cherry tomatoes halved
  • Oregano
  • More Extra virgin olive oil
  • Warm water
  • More Salt to taste

Instructions

  1. Mix the yeast with the sugar and lukewarm water and set aside to activate.
  2. When frothy, put it in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a hook attachment.
  3. Add the flour, mashed potato, extra virgin olive oil, and salt, and knead well until the dough is smooth.
  4. Make it into a ball, cover it and let it rise for at least 1 hour or until doubled in volume.
  5. When the dough has doubled in volume, roll it into a 1.25 cm – ½ inch thick sheet and use a cookie cutter to cut out circles of 10 cm – 4 inches in diamater.
  6. Make the remaining dough into a ball again, let it rest for 5 minutes, then make more circles, until the dough finishes.
  7. Transfer the circles to a baking tray lined with baking paper and let it proof again for 30 minutes.
  8. Press down with your fingertips to make the characteristic holes.
  9. Drizzle with a generous amount of extra virgin olive oil, a little water and some salt. If you want, you can top the focaccia with halved green olives, or halved cherry tomatoes and a sprinkle of oregano.
  10. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180°C – 355°F for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
  11. As soon as you remove them from the oven, spray them with a little extra virgin olive oil (optional). Let them cool down completely before serving.
