Tomato and Roasted Garlic Focaccia

24 Sep

So good, and a great way to use the cherry tomatoes in your CSA box (if you do indeed get one).


  • 1 1/2 C warm water
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil (plus some for drizzling)
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 3.5 C All purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon instant yeast
  • sliced cherry tomatoes
  • 2 heads of roasted garlic
  • freshly chopped basil

Lightly grease a 9 x 13 pan, and drizzle 1-2 tablespoons olive oil in the bottom.

Combine all of the ingredients (minus the tomatoes, garlic and basil) and beat at high speed. Sadly, I do not have a kitchenaid stand mixer, so I put all the ingredients into my bread machine and put it on the dough setting and let it knead for about 10 mins.

Scoop the sticky batter into the prepared pan, cover the pan and let it rise at room temperature for 60 minutes until it becomes puffy.

While the dough is rising, preheat our oven to 375 F.

After the bread rises gently poke the dough all over with your finger.  Top with tomatoes and roasted garlic.  Drizzle olive oil on top and bake for 40 mins.

Sprinkle chopped basil over the top when the bread come out of the oven.
