Rosemary & Green Olive Focaccia

There is something so satisfying about making your own dough from scratch. The process of seeing it develop from flour and water through each stage of rising and kneading to the end result makes the eating experience so much more for filling. I don’t know about you but I love the feeling of accomplishment that home cooking gives and of course the exceptional flavour in result to the love and care you put into it. If you haven’t tried it already, add this to your list of to do’s it is a must try even if it’s only once an a while.

Rosemary & Green Olive Focaccia

You can use different topping for this such as oregano, anchovies, thin sliced potato, but I chose simple fresh Rosemary from my garden with green olives. The dough comes out quite fluffy and is a perfect addition to a weekend grazing antipasto board with olive and balsamic dipping oil and If you are inclined a nice glass of red wine while you can sit back, relax and enjoy the fruits of your labour.
