Onion Focaccia with Mama Dini Spice Blend by Dude Food Fire
To make the Dough, you will need the following ingredients:
¼ cup whole wheat flour
3 ½ cups all-purpose flour (plus additional for rolling out)
2 teaspoons fresh yeast or 2 ¼ ounce package instant or rapid-rise yeast
2 teaspoons kosher salt
2 teaspoons sugar or 1 teaspoon honey
2 teaspoons + 2 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/3 cup lukewarm water
Once you have ingredients ready, in mixer with dough hook attachment, combine flours, yeast, salt and sugar. Turn on to low speed. Slowly add water and oil. Mix for about 10 minutes until dough is smooth and firm to touch. Roll dough out and form 3 separate balls roughly 10 ounces each. Cover with damp towel and set in a warm spot until doubled in size (about 2 to 2 ½ hours).
For focaccia, punch down the dough. On a cookie sheet or cast iron skillet, pour olive oil. Heat pan slightly. Stretch and roll out dough to about 10-12-inches. Place stretched dough in pan. Roll it around to coat it in the oil then turn it over and roll it around more so both sides are coated. Cover with damp towel and let rise 1 ½ hours until it fills up the bottom of the pan. Poke fingertips in dough to create dimples. Top with onions, herbs, cheese, or other toppings as you wish. Bake at 375 degrees for 12-15 minutes. If using a woodfire oven, let the heat die down and put the pan as far away from the coals as possible. Cook about 10 minutes (rotate halfway through). Remove from oven, let cool, and dig in.
