  • This is a base recipe to use to create your own stunning focaccia bread using herbs, spices and veggies. Have fun being creative and designing your own work of art!
    In a small bowl combine the honey, warm water and yeast, stir and let sit for about 5 minutes.  
    OPTIONAL: In a small pan, heat 1 T or so of oil and cook the garlic, onion and parsley until the onions become translucent but not browned. 
    In a large bowl or a stand mixer, combine flour, salt, herb mixture and stir in the yeast mixture until a dough forms.  Knead for 10-15 minutes until the dough can be stretched between your fingers without breaking (window pane test). 
    Cover and let rise for about an hour.  Pull dough out and form into a round or square or rectangular loaf and flatten down a bit with your fingers tips creating divots in the dough.  Top with the slices of peppers and red onion and drizzle with olive oil OR top with whatever you like- get creative and have fun.  Let rise for another 30 minutes while the oven heats to 400.  Bake for ~35 minutes until bread is golden brown.
