Cherry Tomato and Rosemary Focaccia

Prep Time1 hr 5 mins
Cook Time20 mins
Total Time1 hr 20 mins
Servings: 2 focaccias

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of warm water
  • 2 Tbs. of sugar
  • 2 Tsp. of dry yeast
  • 3 ½ cups of unbleached flour
  • 1 Tsp. of coarse sea salt
  • ¼ cup of olive oil plus more for brushing and the topping
  • 2 Tbs. of cornmeal for dusting
  • 1 big onion finely sliced
  • The leaves of 3-4 rosemary sprigs
  • 2 cups of pearl grape or cherry tomatoes

Instructions

  • In a small bowl dissolve the sugar in the water.
  • Add the yeast and let stand until foamy, about 15 minutes.
  • In the bowl of a standing mixer or food processor, using the dough blade, combine the flour, water, sugar and yeast mix and the olive oil.
  • Process until the dough becomes a ball, around 1.5 minutes.
  • Increase the speed and process, adding more flour if necessary, for 3 more minutes, until the dough is smooth and elastic.
  • Place the dough in an oil coated bowl.
  • Brush the dough with olive oil so no skin will form and cover it with a damp kitchen towel.
  • Let the dough rise until it doubles its size, at least 30 minutes.
  • In the meantime, in a big frying pan over medium heat, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and sauté the onions with the rosemary for 5 minutes until translucent. Reserve.
  • Cover two baking sheets with parchment paper and sprinkle with the cornmeal.
  • Divide the dough and roll and stretch it out into the baking sheets, giving them oblong shapes about 1/2-inch thick.
  • Cover the dough with plastic wrap and let stand for 15 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • Uncover the dough and dimple with your fingertips.
  • Brush the surface with olive oil.
  • Place a tomato in every dot and the cover focaccia with onion and rosemary.
  • Generously sprinkle with coarse sea salt.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until golden.
