I am always health conscious and try to keep my breads as healthy as possible. My usual me asked me to make healthy Focaccia bread by replacing 50% of all-purpose flour with whole wheat flour. This Italian healthy Focaccia bread is a flat oven bread, something similar to a Pizza but a little thicker than Pizza.


Servings: 4 Preparation time:
  • Wheat Flour, Whole-grain, Whole wheat flour 125 gm
  • Wheat Flour, White, All-purpose, Unenriched, Atta All-purpose flour 125 gm
  • Yeast, dry yeast, Fresh yeast 10 gm
  • Brown Sugar, Sugar 1 tsp
  • Salt, Common Salt, Rock Salt, Table Salt Salt 1 tsp
  • Garlic Powder, Lassan Garlic Powder 1 tsp
  • Water Boiled Plain Raw Mineral, Hot, Warm Cold, Mix, sparkling, Carbonated Water 150 ml
  • Olive oil 3 tbs
  • Caramelised Onions ½ cup
  • Pitted black Olives ¼ cup

Instructions (Preparation Steps):

  • In a bowl, take 50 ml lukewarm water. Add sugar and yeast to it. Mix it well and keep aside for 10 minutes or until yeast froths.
  • In a mixing bowl, take wheat flour, All-purpose flour, salt, garlic powder, Olive oil. Make a well in the centre and add yeast solution. Start kneading. Add water little by little and make a dough.
  • Initially the dough will be sticky. Keep kneading the dough for 10 minutes. You will get a smooth, elastic and non-sticky dough.
  • Grease a pan and place kneaded dough into it. Cover it with cling wrap and let it rest for 40 minutes for the first rise or until it doubles in volume.
  • After first rise, Take out the dough on a surface, lightly dusted with flour and punch the dough to release the air. Knead the dough for another 5 minutes.
  • With the help of a rolling pin, roll the dough out into a sheet of 1 inch thickness. Place this in a greased baking tin. Add caramelized onions and Black olives evenly on it.
  • Cover it with cling wrap and set aside for another 30 minutes for second rise or until doubles in volumes.
  • After second rise, bake the bread in a preheated oven at 200 degree Celsius for 25 minutes.
  • Once done, infuse it with some olive oil and serve.

Cook's Tip:
To make garlic cloves easier to peel, microwave them for about 10-15 seconds.
Icecreams set faster and better in aluminium containers. Also, place a thick plastic sheet or spread some salt under the container to keep it from sticking to the floor of the freezer.
Store brown sugar in an airtight container to keep it from hardening.
