We hope you’ve all had a wonderful holiday and a happy new years celebration! Below is our homemade focaccia recipe (just click on the recipe tab). We served this as an appetizer, but decided to plate it individually per person. We set up a small station with pre-served plates and each guest came over to grab a portion. Kind of like an upgraded hors d’oeuvres set up. Next up, the burrata (yes kids homemade burrata!) and tomato jam.
1 cup warm water
1 ¼ tsp yeast
1 tsp honey
1 ¾ cup flour
2 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla salt
-dissolve yeast and honey in water.
-add flour and 2 tsp of salt.
-mix with a dough hook on medium speed for 10 minutes.
-transfer into an oiled bowl, cover and rest 1 ½ hours in a warm spot of your kitchen
-spread onto an oiled sheet pan
-rest for 30 minutes.
-spread dough to ends of sheet pan, drizzle with oil and cover loosely, rest for 1 ½ hours.
-preheat oven to 400 degrees
-sprinkle vanilla salt
-bake for 15 minutes, top shouldn’t have much color and bottom should be lightly golden
