Equipment

Ingredients
  

  • 2 ¼ cups gluten free flour blend * see note
  • 2 teaspoons dry yeast
  • ¾ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon honey or sugar
  • ¾ cup non-dairy milk + 2 tablespoon
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Instructions
 

For the Bread

  • In a large mixing bowl, add all of the dry ingredients and whisk to blend.
  • In a glass bowl, heat the almond milk so that it is lukewarm. (Make sure it is no hotter than 110º F or your yeast may die.)
  • Add yeast, oil, and honey to the almond milk and let it sit for 5 minutes.
  • Add eggs to the liquid and mix well.
  • Pour the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix.
  • If making in a cast iron skillet: oil a large cast iron skillet and put the dough in. Spread the dough to cover the bottom of the skillet. Cover with plastic wrap so it doesn't dry out.
  • If making this more traditionally, place your dough on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet and press into a circle. Cover with plastic wrap.
  • Let the dough rest in the pan for 1 hour.
  • If you are making this on a cookie sheet. Press the dough down to ¼ to ½ inch thickness. Dust the focaccia with gluten free flour blend. Use your fingers to make dimples in the dough.
  • Preheat oven to 375º F.
  • In a small dish, add your chosen toppings to the olive oil and mix. Use a basting brush to spread the oil mixture over the dough.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden and crusty. Baking time will vary slightly depending on how much you press your focaccia dough flat.

Notes

  1. I have tested this recipe with Cup4Cup, Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 GF blend, and Authentic Foods Multi Blend. That doesn't mean others will not work, I just have not tested other flours. Cup4Cup rose the best.
  2.  You can add any toppings you like. Some fun ideas are sun-dried tomatoes, fresh herbs, different cheeses, scallions, etc.
  3. You will know the focaccia bread is finished baking when you insert a toothpick into the center and it comes out clean. If you see crumbs or dough, it will need to bake a little longer.
  4. You can bake this bread in a cast-iron skillet, or on a cookie sheet as specified above.
  5. This bread will keep up to 3 days in an air-tight container, or up to 4 months in the freezer.
