Mushroom & Onion Focaccia

Focaccia is quite popular in Italy and is usually seasoned with olive oil and herbs, topped with onion, cheese and meat, or flavored with a number of vegetables. Focaccia doughs are similar in style and texture to pizza doughs consisting of high-gluten flour, oil, water, salt and yeast. It is typically rolled out or pressed by hand into a thick layer of dough and then baked in a stone-bottom or hearth oven. I prepared focaccia with slightly sauted onions  and mushroom, they tastes too delicious and we enjoyed having this filling focaccia for our dinner with a bowl of creamy broccoli soup,both together turned out our dinner super filling and satisfying...


3cups All purpose flour
1tbsp Active dry yeast
1tsp Salt
1tsp Sugar
1cup Luke Warm water
4tbsps Olive Oil (shaping,greasing)
1no Onion(big n chopped)
1/2cup Mushrooms (chopped)

Mix the sugar, salt and yeast in luke warm water, let them sit for 5 minutes..Take the all purpose flour in a mixing bowl, add the foaming yeast(add water if needed), one tablespoon of olive oil and mix everything well, its will be stickly at this point, transfer the them to lightly floured surface and knead for a while until they turn soft dough..

Coat a deep bowl with olive oil, place the soft dough, cover it and let it sit for 1 hour in a warm place..After an hour,the dough will almost doubled the size...put the dough in a round baking pan.Apply few drops of oil to the baking pan n press the dough to flatten them..Meanwhile heat a tsp of oil and saute the chopped onion, mushroom pieces together until the onions turns transculent, keep aside and let them cool..Gently spread this sauteed veggies over the dough and keep again for an hour in a warm place..

Preheat the oven to 350,place the baking pan in middle rack and bake for 20-25 minutes or else until the crust turns slightly brown..

Serve them with cream cheese, salads etc.
