Method

  • Preheat the oven to 180* C (350*F) Fan.
  • In the mixer bowl, add the yeast and 50 g lukewarm water. Mix well with a spoon.
  • Set aside for 10 minutes, until the yeast starts to activate and foam.
  • Add the flour and a pinch of salt.
  • Beat with the hook attachment. Add the remaining water
  • Mix until a soft dough is formed. It should not be sticky. This process should take about 8-10 minutes.
  • Transfer the dough to a large bowl that has been brushed with oil. Cover with a towel and allow to rise for 1 hour.
  • Brush some oil onto a clean working surface. Roll out the dough with a rolling pin, creating a rectangular shape.
  • Line a 35x35 cm rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Lightly brush with oil.
  • Place the dough onto the baking sheet. Stretch to fit and cover with a towel. Let sit for 30 minutes.
  • While the dough is rising, blend or pulverize most of the basil (reserve some for garnish). You can either use a food processor or a mortar and pestle.
  • When the dough is ready, poke dimples all over, with your fingertips. Do not poke all around the edge. Fill each dimple with cherry tomatoes and drizzle with the oil/basil mixture all over the focaccia.
  • Sprinkle with coarse salt and the remaining basil leaves. Bake for 20-25 minutes until it rises and turns a beautiful golden brown.
