Potato Focaccia Pugliese

Most of us would have known about the famous focaccia,an Italian yeasted and herbed flatbread which ressembles quite like pizza..I got hooked to this potato focaccia when i went through Aparna's Space and i tried sterday this Italian flat bread for our sunday dinner..This focaccia tastes marvellous and very tasty, needless to say that this focaccia was our recent favourite coz everyone loved it much and am surely gonna try with different veggies along with potatoes..I followed each and every step as Aparna went for and the only change i did is i went for whole wheat flour and completely skipped the all purpose flour she used for, i cooked the potatoes partially in salted water before arranging them over the yeasted dough as Aparna did..Thanks a lot to Aparna for sharing this wonderful bread and we loved it with cheese spread and salads..Sending this potato focaccia to T&T-My Diverse Kitchen guest hosted by Srivalli, event by Lakshmi, Champa's Bake Off Event & finally to Susan's Yeast Spotting..

1+1/2tsp Active dry yeast
1+1/2tsp Honey
1/4tsp Salt
1tbsp Olive oil +1tsp olive oil for brushing
2nos Potatoes
Salt

2tsp Dry rosemary

Slice the potatoes and cook in a salted water until they get half cooked, pat dry the potato slices and keep aside..Mix the yeast, honey in a luke warm water and keep aside for 5minutes until they turns foamy..Take the flour,salt, rosemary and oil in a bowl, add gradually the foamy yeast,water (if needed) and knead everything a smooth and elastic dough..Place the dough in a greased bowl and keep aside until they double their volume..

Knead the dough, grease a rectangular tin and place the dough over the greased tin and press the dough with ur fingers to the cover the tin..brush the top of the dough with oil, springle the rosemary and arrange the potato slices over the dough..springle black pepper and salt over the dough..Cover with a damp cloth and allow to rise for an hour..Bake this potato foccacia at 350F for 30minutes until the crust turns golden brown..

I like your use of whole wheat flour. Unfortunately for me, my family doesn't really enjoy whole wheat breads. :(
Thanks for trying out this bread.
