I have been thinking about gluten free focaccia bread quite a bit lately!
Maybe obsessing is more accurate. There is something about that slightly chewy bread I have been missing. You can add any toppings, veggies, cheese…I can almost taste it.
I created a video to show you exactly how to make this focaccia bread recipe below :-).
Gluten Free Focaccia Bread
It isn’t my fault.
It all started when I was out and about running errands the other day. One of the stores I was in was handing out samples of focaccia bread. I haven’t had focaccia in several years, and quite honestly, I didn’t miss it. Until I saw it.
Maybe it is my fault. I was shopping on an empty stomach, which is a dangerous thing. And now, I have a single one track mind. Gluten free focaccia bread.
Baking in a cast iron skillet
I decided to bake this easy gluten free focaccia bread in my large cast iron skillet.
I use cast iron skillets for almost all of my cooking now, but this was my first venture in using one to bake gluten free bread.
When you are gluten free, it is easy to have low iron. A cast iron pan is a simple way to add iron in naturally.
How to Make Gluten Free Focaccia Bread:
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix well.
Your dough should be a similar consistency to this dough.
Spread out the focaccia dough to cover the bottom of the cast iron skillet.
Ways to Customize Your Focaccia Bread:
- Add garlic for a garlic bread focaccia
- You can add your favorite herbs like rosemary and thyme. Herbed focaccia bread is great with a bowl of hot soup!
Sprinkle parmesan and any other toppings you want. Cover with plastic wrap and allow the dough to rise for 45 minutes. Bake.
Slice the bread and enjoy!
