Focaccia is a traditional Italian bread which is light, flavorful, and plain delicious!
I was recently watching Cake Boss on TLC, when Buddy Valastro mentioned that Focaccia was an excellent base for pizza. That got me thinking, I had never tried making foccacia, so why not try to make it?
When I stumbled upon a recipe for potato foccacia, I knew I had to try it! Then, I decided to make my process into an instructable since I've been so lazy with making them. So here I present, Flavorful Potato Foccacia!!
Kneadless (HAHA...oh wait it's not funny?) to never making foccacia before, it turned out delicious, soft, and fluffy. I'll definitely be making again.
*This recipe has been adapted from cooks illustrated original foccacia recipe
Oh yeah, feel free to ask me any questions(you can post a comment or send me a message) you have, and please critique this instructable so I can improve. Thanks!
Step 1: Ingredients
3 1/2 cups AP flour (give or take)
1 1/2 tsp. instant yeast*
1 1/4 tsp salt + a bit more salt(for garnishing the dough)
5-6 tbs olive oil**
1 large potato***
1 cup water
*The original recipe called for active dry yeast, I only had instant on hand.
**The amount varies, I'll be giving separate measurements of olive oil for different parts of the instructable.
***The final amount will be 1 1/3 cup shredded cooked potato. More on that in step two!
