Olive Oil and Garlic Focaccia

When making focaccia, the process is quite similar to making pizza crust. Only you don't have to worry about toppings. So, for the crust, just bake a dough made with flour, yeast, olive oil, water, and salt. If you want, you can also include 2 onions in the equation. As a final step, coat the crusts with the mixture of garlic, olive oil, salt, and rosemary.

Done

Spread some flour on the work surface, knead the dough a little, then form it into a lump.

Cut the onions in such a way so that they resemble water-lilies. Place them in the middle of the crust dough pieces.

8
Done

Place them on a baking tray, sprinkle some vegetable oil over them, and bake them for 40 minutes at 400⁰F/200⁰C.

9

For the olive oil-garlic mixture: Add the garlic cloves, after you poked some holes in them, the olive oil, rosemary sprig, and some salt to a smaller bowl. Mix.

Well, I love to eat! I guess I always did. Tasty foods, traditional foods, fast-foods, healthy foods and, again, not so healthy ones. You name it.
