Focaccia with Gourmet Octopus and Potatoes

In Pizza Oven Recipes

Focaccia is a beloved Italian flatbread known for its rich flavor and versatile nature. Traditionally made with simple ingredients like flour, water, yeast, salt, and olive oil, focaccia dough is left to rise, often for extended periods, to develop its unique texture. What sets this bread apart is its characteristic dimpled surface, created by pressing the dough with fingertips before baking. This bread is typically flavored with herbs like rosemary, garlic, or sea salt, and can be topped with various ingredients such as tomatoes, olives, or onions. Baked to a golden perfection, focaccia is enjoyed on its own, as a side dish, or as a base for sandwiches. Its crispy crust and soft, airy interior make it a favorite in many cuisines.

Our idea of focaccia is with stone ground flour and 48 hours of leavening.
In this recipe, we cooked the focaccia in the Dolce Vita Top gas oven, on a round tray, at 300° C / 570°F for 5 minutes
