Focaccia is one of the iconic Italian dishes and is very simple to make: it consists of only 3 ingredients: flour, water and extra virgin olive oil, plus yeast and salt. Yet in its simplicity it is truly yummy!
The Focaccia recipe that I present to you today uses poolish to obtain a wonderful leavening.
As the rising times are long, you don’t have to be in a hurry, get ready in advance.
The process involves the preparation of the poolish the morning of the day before, the preparation of the dough the evening of the day before and the cooking takes place the morning of the following day.
Don’t worry, your patience will be rewarded and your Focaccia will thrill you and those who will have the pleasure of tasting it!
This Focaccia recipe is taken from the blog Magie dal forno e dal mondo (in Italian) where you can also find other interesting recipes.
