Caramelized Onion and Rosemary Foccacia





I love baking breads...The smell that lingers throughout the house when the bread is in the oven is heavenly.....After Mohit gifted me a Kitchen aid, making bread has become really easy...All the kneading is done by the machine in a jiffy ....But I did made breads even when I didn't had the Kitchen aid....Only difference is that it used to take a bit more time and energy, but the results were as good....Remember my Roasted Garlic Foccacia.....I love to eat my Foccacia, reheated in the oven...Reheating gives it a nice crunch.....Caramelized onions and rosemary made a wonderful topping...I had some cherry tomatoes lying in the fridge, so I tucked them as well in the dough....Do give this recipe a try...So here it is...




All you need is

Warm water- 1 cup
Honey- 1 tsp
Active dry yeast- 2 tsp
All purpose flour-2 and 1\2 cup
Olive oil-1\4 cup and 6 tbsp
Salt- 2 tsp
Cherry tomatoes-7-8 ( halved )
Rosemary- 1 sprig ( needles removed from stem )
Onion- 1 cup ( thinly sliced )
Parmesan cheese- 1\2 cup



Method of preparation

Mix yeast ,honey and warm water in a bowl
Keep aside for 8-10 minutes, until bubbles are formed on top
Add all purpose flour, 1\4 cup olive oil and salt in a bowl
Add the yeast water to the bowl and knead to make a dough
If using a stand mixer, knead the dough for 5 minutes on high speed
If using hands, transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead with the heels of your hands for 10-12 minutes
The dough should be soft and elastic
Lightly oil a bowl and transfer the dough to the bowl
Cover the bowl with a cling wrap and let it rest for 1 hour, until it doubles in size
Once the dough has doubled, slightly knead it and transfer it to the prepared pan
Press the dough in the pan using your finger tips
Make holes all over the dough using your fingers
Drizzle with 2 tbsp olive oil
Cover the pan and let it rest for 20 minutes
Pre heat the oven to 400 degrees F
Grease a 9 x 13 inch pan
Add 2 tbsp olive oil in a pan and add the sliced onions
Cover the pan and caramelize the onions until they are golden brown, stirring occasionally
Top the dough with cherry tomatoes, rosemary ,caramelized onions and parmesan
Sprinkle a bit of salt and drizzle the remaining olive oil
Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the sides turns brown
Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack
Serve hot
If you want to serve the Foccacia later, just heat it in the oven at 400 degree F for 5-7 minutes
