"This is my second order for your oregano and I would like to say that it is the "BEST" I have ever used. It is better, much better, than my own home grown oregano. I want to thank you people for a superior product that I absolutely love and so do the friends I share it with...God Bless"   Charles W.,  Plainville, Connecticut

Focaccia d'Oliva, Rosmarino e Cipolla
Olive, Rosemary and Onion Focaccia
(Focaccia d'Oliva, Rosmarino e Cipolla)
 
 
Ingredients:

One 1/4-ounce package (2 and 1/2 teaspoons) active dry yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
4 and 1/2 to 5 cups all-purpose flour
1 and 1/4 teaspoons salt
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh rosemary leaves plus whole rosemary leaves
1/4 cup minced onion
1/2 lb Kalamata, Nicoise, or green Greek olives or a combination, pitted and cut into slivers (about 1 cup)
1 and 1/2 teaspoons coarse salt, or to taste
 
Directions:
 
In the large bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the dough hook stir together the yeast, the sugar, and 1 and 3/4 cups lukewarm water and proof the yeast mixture for 5 minutes, or until it is foamy.

Stir in 4 and 1/2 cups of the flour, the salt, and 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and knead the dough, scraping down the dough hook occasionally and adding as much of the remaining 1/2 cup flour as necessary to form a soft, slightly sticky dough, for 3 minutes.

Transfer the dough to a lightly oiled bowl, turn it to coat it with the olive oil, and let it rise, covered, in a warm place for 1 hour, or until it is double in bulk.

Knead in the chopped rosemary, press the dough with lightly oiled hands into a well-oiled 15 and 1/2 by 10 and 1/2-inch jelly-roll pan, and let it rise, covered loosely, for 30 minutes. The dough may be made 8 hours in advance and kept covered and chilled.

Dimple the dough with your fingertips, making 1/4-inch-deep indentations, brush it with the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil, and top it with the onion, the olives, the salt, and the whole rosemary leaves.

Bake the focaccia in the bottom third of a preheated 400 F. oven for 35 to 45 minutes, or until it is golden and cooked through.

Transfer the focaccia to a rack, let it cool for 10 minutes, and serve it, cut into squares, warm or at room temperature.
