Description

The Schiacciata-Flatbread with Black Olives, Rosemary, and Cheese is a Sicilian Street Food delicacy, a simple, ancient, and cheap but great taste.

Ingredients
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon yeast (powder)
  • 0.7 ounces black olives
  • rosemary
  • 1/2 cup pecorino cheese (cubes)
  • coarse salt
Instructions
    • In the planetary mixer, add the flour, yeast powder, honey, and warm water; mix for at least 15 minutes with the dough hook.
    • Then add salt, oil (in a consistent but thin stream like the picture below), and olives and mix for at least 10 minutes.
    • After that, let the dough rest for 3 hours, covering the bowl with a kitchen rag until the dough volume rises.
    • Roll it out on a previously greased baking pan.
    • Press the dough gently, with your fingertips outwards to the borders. Avoid popping the air bubbles that have formed inside the dough, which will make the focaccia soft.
    • Add the rosemary and cheese (cut into cubes) and push it into the dough)
    • Bake the schiacciata at 400F in the preheating oven for 35 minutes.
    • After letting it cool down on a grill.
    • Brush it with oil, sprinkle it with coarse salt, and … Buon Appetito!
