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.
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.
