How to Make Olive Basil Foccacia

  • Mix the sugar, salt and yeast in lukewarm water and let them sit for 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, take the all-purpose flour in a mixing bowl and add the foaming yeast. Mix everything well and transfer them to lightly floured surface and knead to form a soft dough.
  • Coat a deep bowl with olive oil and place the soft dough. Brush with more oil, cover it and let it rise for 1 hour in a warm place. After an hour it will almost double in size.
  • Place the dough in a round baking pan.
  • Mix both the dry basil leaves with 1 tsp of olive oil and keep aside.
  • Apply a few drops of oil to the baking pan and press the dough to flatten them and let it sit again for 1 hour. The dough will again rise and double in size.
  • Press the dough with your fingertips and drizzle some oil. Place seedless olives over them and brush the dough with basil-oil mixture and sprinkle the salt.
  • Preheat the oven to 475 Fahrenheit and place the baking pan on the middle rack and bake for 15 minutes or till the dough turns slightly brown.
  • Serve with cream cheese and salads.
