Decorated foccacia

I love baking. It's soothing, you're making something out of nothing and in the end you're left with all this goodness.


Focaccia op Pinterest

I must admit I didn't think of this myself. I saw it on Pinterest the other day and just had to make it. You can see the examples here. .

Je kan je focaccia met vanalles versieren. Groenten, kruiden, olijven..ik heb de meest bizarre creaties voorbij zien komen. Ik ben alleen met dit soort dingen helemaal niet creatief dus ik heb het simpel gehouden.

Olive oil

There's no going around it, focaccia means a lot of olive oil. Get a nice quality because it really enhances the flavour.


This is seriously one of the easiest things to bake. It's just a simple rest and then gently stretching your dough into the baking sheet. Let it rest some more, make dimples, cover with oil and salt and bake!

I you love baking why not try scones, Greek pita or maybe even sourdough!

  • Grease a baking tray. Carefully let the dough drop onto the tray, it won't stick to the bowl because of the oil. Stretch the dough so it covers the entire baking tray, cover and let is rise for another 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees celcius.
  • Cut strands of the courgette, half the cherry tomatoes and cut the onions in rings. Form dimples by using your fingers of knuckles and decorate your focaccia with the veggies, or not if you want a regular focaccia. Generously sprinkle olive oil and sesalt onto your dough. Bake until golden brown, about 20-25 minutes.
  • Let it cool off a bit before serving.

      Hi Emmelie,

      Ik doe het eigenlijk altijd met een keukenmachine, dat gaat natuurlijk veel sneller. Ik heb begrepen dat wanneer je met de hand kneed je 8 minuten moet aanhouden. Dan zijn de gluten goed ontwikkeld.
