Focaccia with carmelized onions & tomatoes

Focaccia (Italian pronunciation: [foˈkattʃa]) is a flat oven-baked Italian bread,[1] which may be topped with herbs or other ingredients. It is similar in style and texture to pizza, but not considered to be the same.



Ingredients

1 1/2 cups flour

1 pkg Active Dry Yeast
1 tsp honey
1 tsp minced garlic

1 medium red onion thinly sliced

1 tomato sliced
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp fresh ground pepper
salt to taste
olive oil as required

Method


In a medium bowl, stir together yeast & honey. Set aside for a few mins in a warm place till the yeast is frothy & bubbly.


When the yeast is frothy, add some olive oil. Mix in flour, minced garlic & salt. Knead to form a smooth dough.

Cover with plastic wrap or a moist paper towel & set aside for 45 mins to 1 hr till doubled in size.

Press the dough onto a greased baking sheet. Using your finger make little hole like dents on the surface of the dough. Drizzle with olive oil. Let the dough rest for 15-20 mins till puffy.


In a pan, heat 1 tsp oil & caramelize thinly sliced onions.

Top the dough with caramelized onions & sliced tomatoes. Sprinkle with salt, freshly ground pepper & grated Parmesan cheese.


Bake in a 425F preheated oven for 15-20 mins till golden brown.

Remove from the oven, cut in slices & serve.
