FOCACCIA Dough ½ teaspoon active dry yeast 1 ½ cups (12 fl oz/375 ml) cold water 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 tablespoon honey 1 ½ cups (71⁄2 oz/235 g) bread flour 1 ½ cups (71⁄2 oz/235 g) durum wheat flour 2 teaspoons salt Toppings Olive oil for drizzling Flaky salt, plus your choice of cherry or sun-dried tomatoes, fresh or dried rosemary, olives, anchovies, or other inspired choices, for sprinkling Shelf Life and Storing This stays fresh for a couple of days in a plastic bag. Reheat it for 10 minutes in a preheated 300°F (150°C) oven. Makes 1 large pan-sized bread 1 Dough: Mix all the ingredients in a bowl. You don’t have to knead the dough; just mix, either by hand or with a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook, until all the ingredients hold together. Cover the bowl with a lid or plastic wrap and let the dough rise at room temperature for about 8 hours. 2 Oil a rimmed baking sheet (or line it with parchment paper), and scrape the dough into the pan. Drizzle on a tablespoon of olive oil and press out the dough until it almost covers the pan. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise for about 40 minutes. 3 Position a rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 475°F (250°C) for at least 30 minutes before baking. 4 Toppings: Drizzle the dough with more olive oil and dimple it all over with your fingertips. Sprinkle on your choice of topping(s). Press thinly sliced fresh vegetables, if using, well into the dough. 5 Bake until the bread has a good color, about 25 minutes. Serve right out of the oven.
