[RECIPE] Rosemary Onion Focaccia

Behold! A wild recipe has appeared! :)

My oven's finally been fixed so I'm able to bake again! Super excited to share this one with you today! My sister had this Biology project studying properties of yeast via baking bread, so of course I was delegated to help. I was searching for a recipe with the least amount of ingredients possible since I was sort of tired that day, but with something more unique than just a plain loaf. I came across this savory recipe courtesy of Smoky Wok and it came out awesome! Apologies in advance for the dark pictures; my kitchen doesn't have great lighting :/

Looks like I've been spelling "focaccia" wrong...whoops!


(Serves 4-6)

(1) 3 cups of all purpose flour, with extra for kneading
(2) 1 1/4 cups warm water
(3) 2 tsp dried active yeast
(4) 2 tsp sugar
(5) 2 tbsp olive oil + more for brushing (I had grapeseed oil on hand)
(6) 2 tsp sea salt
(7) 1/2 large red onion, sliced
(8) 2 tsp Dried rosemary (fresh if available!)
(9) Optional: 1 tsp garlic powder


1. Combine the sugar,oil, and yeast in the warm water and mix well. Let stand for 10 minutes or until the yeast foams up.

2. In a bowl or mixer, combine flour and salt. Pour in the yeast mixture and mix well until a dough starts to form.

3. Flour your surface and turn out your dough. Knead until well-combined, elastic, and smooth.

4. Place in floured bowl, cover, and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about an hour.

5. Preheat your oven to 200 °C/392 °F. Punch down your dough and knead well.

6. Line a tray with parchment paper and roll/spread out your dough. Cover and let rise again for about half an hour.

7. Press indentations into the dough using your fingers.

8. Brush with oil. Sprinkle on sea salt and rosemary. Top with sliced onions, pressing them in well. I wanted a bit more savory flavor so I also sprinkled on some garlic powder.

9. Bake for 20-30 minutes until golden brown, depending on your oven. Mine took about 35 minutes.

10. Slice and enjoy dipped in some olive oil + balsamic vinegar!
