Directions for: Fresh Herb Focaccia with Cherry Tomatoes & Parmesan Cheese


2 tsp white sugar

2 oz active dry yeast

1 ½ cup warm water

4 Tbsp olive oil

½ tsp salt

4 - 4 ½ cups all purpose flour

1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved

1 cup Parmesan Cheese, shredded

1 Tbsp coarse sea salt

Cracked Black Pepper

¼ cup extra virgin olive oil


1. Dissolve the sugar and yeast into the warm water. Set aside for 10-12 minutes. Combine the flour and salt into a large mixing bowl. Add the water and yeast mixture with the extra virgin olive oil. Once a dough has formed, turn the dough onto a floured work surface and knead for approximately 5 minutes. Shape into a ball.

2. Lightly oil a mixing bowl and place the dough inside. Cover with a damp cloth and set aside in a warm, draft free location and let rise for 40 minutes (note- the dough should double in size/ volume).

3. Remove the dough from the bowl and place the dough onto an oiled baking tray. Pat the dough down and spread the dough to the corners of the pan. Brush the dough with more olive oil and place the halved cherry tomatoes on top of the dough. Sprinkle the tomatoes with shaved cheese, sea salt, pepper and more olive oil. Bake the dough in a pre-heated 400-degree wood-fired oven for 15-20 minutes or until the golden brown. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
