Savoury Sundried Tomato & Herb Focaccia

Bread is great. Versatile. Filling. It’s a daily staple. But you know, it’s… bread. Kind of gets boring after a while. Sometimes you just need a change of pace. Or maybe location – like Italy for instance. In Italy, bread is a way of life so it’s not surprising they created focaccia. Focaccia takes everything you love about bread and raises it up to a whole new level of deliziosa. It’s crusty, chewy and full of mouth‑pleasing flavours like rosemary and oregano. It’s also pretty easy to make. But let’s just keep that between us – bread might get jealous.

  • One 1/4‑ounce package (about 2‑1/4 teaspoons) quick‑rising yeast
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons garlic salt, divided

How to make it

  1. Lightly spray 13 x 9‑inch baking pan with cooking spray; dust with cornmeal.
  2. In large bowl, combine 1 cup flour, oats, 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning, yeast, sugar and 1 teaspoon garlic salt; mix well. In small saucepan, heat water and 1/4 cup olive oil until very warm (120°F to 130°F). Add to flour mixture; mix well. Gradually stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough.
  3. Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface. Knead 8 to 10 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Cover; let rest 10 minutes.
  4. Put dough into pan, pressing dough out to edges of pan. Using fingertips, poke indentations over surface of dough. Brush dough with remaining 2 tablespoons oil. Sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning and 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt. Arrange dried tomatoes across top; sprinkle with cheese.
  5. Cover; let rise in warm place 30 minutes or until doubled in size.
  6. Heat oven to 400°F.
  7. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown. Cut into strips or squares. Serve warm.
