Makes 1 large focaccia
Preparation Time About an hour, depending on how fast the dough rises
Oven Temperature 180°C
Baking Time 25 minutes
1 Prepare Base Sift the flour and salt together and add the sugar and yeast. Add the olive oil and about 200ml warm water, and mix to form a soft dough.
2 Turn out the dough onto a floured surface and knead for 5 to 10 minutes until smooth and elastic. Place in a greased mixing bowl, cover and stand in a warm place for about 10 minutes until dough has almost doubled in volume.
3 Knead the dough down until smooth. Roll out into a 1cm-thick circle. Place on a greased baking tray, cover with greased cling wrap and leave to rise.
4 Press hollows into the dough with your thumbs, drizzle with the olive oil, and sprinkle with the salt, garlic, sun-dried tomatoes and rosemary. Bake for about 25 minutes until golden brown, remove from oven, drizzle with the olive oil from the sun-dried tomatoes, slice and serve.
