Ingredients

Focaccia Dough

  • 4 cups bread flour
  • 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 3/4 cup room temperature water
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Topping

  • 1/2 cup prepared pesto
  • 3 cloves roasted garlic, smashed
  • 1-1/2 cups sun-dried tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup grated Asiago cheese

Instructions

Focaccia Dough

  • In a large bowl, combine flour and yeast . Drizzle in water and add honey and salt. Stir dough with a wooden spoon until a slightly-sticky dough forms. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let sit at room temperature overnight or 18-24 hours.
  • The next day, preheat oven to 425F. Lightly grease a 9x13 baking sheet with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Punch risen dough down and gently gather into a smooth ball and pat into greased skillet.  Cover skillet with plastic wrap and let rise 30 minutes.

Topping

  • Once dough has risen, gently spread with pesto and use your fingers to make little indentations all over top.
  • Bake focaccia at 425F 20 minutes, then sprinkle with roasted garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, and Asiago cheese. Roast an additional 10 minutes until a light golden brown. Cool focaccia 10 minutes before slicing into squares. Enjoy warm!
