Recipe Ingredients for Blitz Focaccia

300 g (1 1/4 cups) water, room temperature
6 grams (1 tsp) instant yeast
500 g (3 1/4 cups) all purpose flour
60 g (1/3 cup) olive oil
10 g (1 1/4 tsp) salt
1/4 cup cherry tomatoes
120 g (1 cup) olive oil
2 cloves of garlic, crushed to a paste
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp ground cumin

Recipe Directions for Blitz Focaccia

  1. First make the herb oil. Heat the oil to about 100 degrees. You want it warm - that's all! Once warmed take it off the burner and add the chopped herbs, garlic, paprika, cumin, salt and pepper, to taste. Let sit at room temp to infuse.

  2. For the focaccia, mix flour, yeast, salt, olive oil and water together. Once combined knead with a dough hook on your mixer for about 11 mins. Your dough will never become that strong. Don't worry... it's blitz focaccia! It can't fail! Once the dough is kneaded, fold it into a tight ball into a greased container with a lid. Let sit at room temp for 1 to 1 1/2 hours until the dough has approximately doubled in size.

  3. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

  4. Divide the dough into six equal pieces and form each piece into a light boule and let rest on the counter for about 5-10 mins. Pat each dough into a round about 4 inches in diameter and lay them all out on a parchment lined baking sheet. Brush each focaccia generously with herb oil. Be sure to let chunks of herbs and garlic coat the focaccia. It may look like a lot, but it will all absorb during baking. Place cherry tomatoes on top of the focaccia and lightly press them in. Cover your baking sheet tightly in plastic and let proof at room temperature for about 30 mins. The rounds should poof slightly, up around the tomatoes.

  5. Right before places them in the oven brush with more oil if it's all been absorbed. Sprinkle lightly with the chunky sea salt. Bake till golden, about 30 to 40 mins. Then... dig in!
