This is a culinary wonder! Simply mix the ingredients and let time create your dough. No mess, no fuss. The next day, bake it and enjoy! This is one of my most popular and versatile recipes. You can use this dough to create bread and pizza too. So easy, all you need is to mix, let it rest and bake. Suits vegans and people with nut, egg and dairy allergies too.
How to make easy, no-Knead Focaccia, serves 6
4 cups of 00 or all purpose flour
tip of a teaspoon of dry yeast
1+1/2 cup of water at room temperature, plus a few tablespoons, as needed
2 teaspoons of salt flakes
1 tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil (plus more for drizzling on top)
- Mix together, flour, yeast and most of the water and mix with a chopstick. Don’t add all the water at once as you may not need it all, it will depend on your flour. The texture you are looking for is a very soft dough. Add salt and oil and mix with a chopstick. Cover with plastic film and allow to rise for 10-12 hours or until more than doubled in size and very bubbly. In warmer climate this will take less.
- Preheat your oven to 220 C, 430 F. Using olied hands, gently lift the dough (it will be sticky) out of the bowl and spread it onto an oiled oven tray (or one lined with baking paper). Drizzle with oil on top, create dimples with your fingers and season with salt flakes.
- Bake for 25-20 minutes or until golden.
- Serve as it it or with thick slices of tomatoes! SUBSCRIBE to keep enjoying my recipes for free! Watch this recipe on my YouTube channel SILVIA’S CUCINA is available in stores and online!MADE IN ITALY is available here, here and here
