In the last post I told you the story about Crazy Dough, now is the time to show you what you can do with it. The easiest thing is to make is focaccia, a flat Italian bread. Just take a piece of Crazy dough, shape it into irregular focaccia shape, drizzle with some olive oil and sprinkle with rosemary and sea salt. You can add some olives, thinly sliced onion, cheese, ham, anchovies, vegetables – whatever you like. Bake for 20 minutes and you will get a tasty focaccia with no trouble at all!
When you find out you don’t have any bread in your home, Crazy Dough Focaccia is a quick and easy way to make your own. You can use the same dough to make pizza, rolls or whatever else you like.
Focaccia is a great side dish, goes excellent with soups and stews and can be used as a fantastic sandwich bread.
You can also make Focaccia using Vegan Crazy Dough or Gluten-Free Crazy Dough.
Video instructions for making Crazy Dough:
- 1 ball of Crazy Dough, size depending on how large you want your focaccia to be
- 2 Tbsp olive oil or more
- chopped rosemary leaves
- sea salt to taste
Take a piece of Crazy Dough, flatten with your hands on a floured surface. Transfer to a baking pan lined with baking paper. Leave to prove in a warm kitchen for about 15-20 minutes or until dough starts to rise.
Using your fingers, poke the unbaked dough to create dots. Drizzle focaccia with olive oil, sprinkle with sea salt and rosemary. Bake in preheated 425 F (220 C) oven for about 20 minutes.
Drizzle with some more olive oil and serve.
Looks easy and mummy, going to make this soon, like anything easy
Do you bake all of the different ones on 425 and how long can you freeze it?
Focaccia and pizza doughs are usually baked in very hot ovens. I baked them on lower temperatures, too, and they just needed more time.
I guess the dough can be frozen for up to 4 weeks, like other types of yeast bread dough.
That seems a lot of dried yeast compared to the dry yeast Can you please confirm this for me please
The original recipe calls for 14 g dry yeast (it doesn’t say whether it is active or instant yeast). I use 80 g of fresh yeast instead.
I tried to convert that amount into Tbsp for my US readers by using online yeast conversion charts. It could be that yeast measurements in US are different from European.
I made with thyme and sea salt, then brushed with browned garlic butter. I also browned mine more. It was delish and the only thing i could eat when i was sick.
Hey, that’s great!
Do you mean parchment paper, the pictured baking pan doesn’t look like there anything lining it. I am making one right now, can’t wait to taste it. Many great recipes, just like my dear mother made!
I baked focaccia in another pan. This one I used just for taking picture.
