Rosemary & Sea Salt Focaccia

Just breaking bread on the weekend... mmmm, and it was delicious!

So easy too -

500g bread flour
1 tbsp coarse semolina
2x g sachets dried yeast
Sea salt
50ml olive oil
Rosemary sprigs

Mix flour, semolina & yeast with a few pinches of salt.  Mix 320ml warm water with the olive oil.  Mkae well in the middle of the flour mix and gradually add the liquid, using fingers to mix through and eventually it will form into a ball.  Place onto floured bench and knead for about 5-10 mins until smooth and elastic.

Place dough in a large bowl, cover with clean tea towel and leave to rise in a warm place for about an hour or until doubled in size.

Preheat oven to 200degreesC.  Oil a baking tray about 28cm x 20cm.  Place risen dough in the tray pushing out to the edges.  Sprinkle with sea salt, rosemary sprigs and smidgen of oil.  You can also add olives or cherry tomatoes if you like.

Bake for 30 mins until golden and cooked through.  Slice and serve with homemade dip!

With thanks to Gordon Ramsay!
