Directions
  • First, add the yeast and flour to the bowl of the food processor. Turn the machine on speed 1 with the beater and add the honey. Then gradually add the water and let it mix well.
  • Once the dough has absorbed all the water, add the olive oil and salt. Now continue to knead for about 15 minutes until the dough has acquired a nice smooth and firm consistency.
  • Then transfer to a lightly floured work surface and fold a few times from the outside to the center. This will trap air and make the dough nice and fluffy.
  • Then form into a ball, place in a bowl and cover with a tea towel. Leave to rise in a warm place for at least 2 hours. The dough should then have doubled in volume.
  • In the meantime, wash the cherry tomatoes thoroughly. Then cut them in half and press the tomato halves lightly so that most of the liquid and seeds come out and the focaccia is not soggy later.
  • After resting, grease a baking tray and place the dough on it. Now, with your fingertips, flatten the dough and pull it apart until it is spread all over the surface. To prevent the dough from sticking to your fingers, it helps to rub them with a little olive oil.
  • Now spread the cherry tomatoes evenly over the entire surface of the dough. Drizzle with a little olive oil and season with oregano and coarse sea salt flakes.
  • Now let rest for another 30 minutes.
  • Finally, place the tray on the lowest shelf of the oven and bake for about 45 minutes at 190°C/370°F top/bottom heat. Remove from the oven and allow to cool briefly. Now the delicious focaccia can be eaten!
