Step by Step method

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast with 3/4 water,
  2. add  flour, oil and  barley malt syrup or honey.
  3. Mix for a few minutes, then add the salt.
  4. If you think the dough is too dry, add the remaining water. Wholemeal flour can require a little extra moisture than regular flour.
  5. Knead vigorously until it looks smooth and elastic, this will take about 10 minutes if doing by hand or 5 if enlisting the help of an electric mixer fitted with a dough hook.
  6. Shape into a ball and rest for 20 minutes in a bowl, covered with a tea towel.
  7. Stretch it with your hand to form a rectangle and fold into 3. This step will give strength and texture to your dough and is essential in order to obtain a soft,  airy and chewy focaccia.
  8. Repeat one last time after 30 minutes.
  9. Place the folded dough in an oiled oven tray, cover it with a tea-towel and let it prove for around 90 minutes or until it doubles in size.
  10. Once the dough has risen, stretch it out to cover the tray and sprinkle the surface with seasalt.
  11. Let it rest for another 30 minutes, then, using your fingertips, press the dough down onto the tray to create lots of little holes.
  12. Drizzle the holes with the glaze and sprinkle with some more salt. 
  13. Top with pitted olives and roughly sliced chillies.
  14. Let your focaccia rest for another 20 minutes, while your oven heats up to 200 C (390 F).
  15. Bake for 20-25 minutes  until it looks slightly golden and delicious.
  16. Allow to cool at room temperature in the tray for 10-15 minutes, then serve cut into pieces.
