Last night I said I was going to make Homemade Dinner Rolls with our Soup and Salad for Dinner… I couldn’t sleep well- I think the menu didn’t sit well with me. So at 4:00 AM tossing and turning in bed I decided some Homemade Focaccia will compliment the Veal Milanese over Salad and Manhattan Clam Chowder better… I finally got to bed, so here it is.
Casaculinarian.com pizza dough recipe. Link below. I suggest using High Gluten Flour if possible.
olive oil 1/2 cup
fresh rosemary sprigs 2 tablespoons
salt and pepper taste
grated parmesan cheese 1/8 cup
onion 1/2 julienned
garlic 3 bulbs sliced
Italian seasonings 1 tablespoons
parsley 1 tablespoon
granulated garlic salt 1 teaspoon
On a Sicilian pan or cookie sheet add olive oil and spread out evenly on pan. Place dough after it is ready on the pan. Spread out like a round thick pizza, so its still 1 inch thick. With a pastry brush add olive oil to top of dough. Use a fork and poke holes all over top of dough. Cover with plastic wrap and place in you oven for 3-4 hours. Do not turn oven on. The dough will proof and double in side.
Take dough out of oven and turn oven on 400 degrees. In a sauté pan add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and sauté onions and garlic. Brown the onions and garlic but do not burn. Season Focaccia with all seasonings and herbs. Add onions and garlic to top. Example below.
Cook on 400 degrees and before it browns add more olive oil with a pastry brush. Finish in the oven till golden brown. (olive oil may not be completely used.) Enjoy! You can use this for sandwiches or as a side.
