Another heavy snow hit the East coast of America. I look at it as the best excuse to make a chubby sourdough focaccia. This guy here is with Za’atar, in the dough and on top. What are you waiting for??

10 gr extra virgin olive oil

salt

10 gr salt

za'atar

Step 1

Autolysis: In a bowl, mix the flour and water mixture (apart from 50 grams of water which we will use later on) until consolidation. Leave to rest for an hour covered with a towel.

Step 4

Add the olive oil and knead until incorporated. Folds on the side of the bowl create a beautiful, smooth side facing up. Cover with towel and let dough rest for half an hour.

10 gr extra virgin olive oil

Step 5

From this moment, every 30 minutes, we will fold the dough. Between the folds cover the dough with a towel.

Step 6

After 4 folds, oil the baking tray you will use for making the focaccia with a lot of olive oil, and move the dough there, with the beautiful side up. Cover and leave for half an hour.

Step 7

After resting, lightly stretch the dough towards the corners of the tray, not pushing it, if it returns slightly to the center- let it rest for another half hour and stretch again.

Step 8

After the dough is spread on the entire tray, cover the dough and let it rest until it nearly doubles its volume.

Step 9

Half an hour before the dough finished proofing, when it seems to have doubled in volume, preheat oven to 230 °C.

Step 10

After the focaccia has proofed, generously sprinkle her with amazing olive oil and more Za’atar and make holes in the dough with your fingers. Pay attention! We want to get the fingers to the bottom of the dough, to prevent it from rising at these wholes we did.

Step 11

Bake for 25-30 minutes.

Step 12

Take the focaccia out of the oven, brush her with olive oil.

Step 13

Try to resist 30 minutes before cutting her. Wow, Wow. Too tasty.
