What you'll need

  • 180 ml extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic , minced
  • teaspoons dried active yeast
  • 710 ml warm water (50°c)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 540 g gluten free white bread flour
  • teaspoons xanthan gum
  • 120 g corn flour
  • 4 tablespoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons fine sea salt plus more for the top
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Assorted fresh herbs and vegetables plus olives and capers , if desired

Method:

 

  • Combine the olive oil and garlic in a small saucepan and warm over low heat just until the oil is warm to the touch. Remove from heat and let cool. Pour 60ml of the oil into a small container, trying to leave the garlic settled at the bottom of the pan. Save both for later.
  • Dissolve the yeast in the warm water and honey. Let sit until foamy, about 5 minutes.
  • Ina large bowl, combine the flour, xanthan gum, corn flour, baking powder, and 2 tablespoons of salt. Pour the yeast mixture over the flour mixture, add the 120ml of olive oil along with the minced garlic and stir to combine. The dough will be soft, more like a batter than dough. Cover the bowl with a towel or cling film, place in a draft free warm part of the kitchen, and allow to sit until doubled in size, about 1 hour. If a draft free area isn’t possible, you can put the dough in a bowl, cover it in cling film and place a large bowl over the top.
  • Line a rimmed baking tray with parchment paper and brush with some of the reserved olive oil. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Scrape the dough into the tray and with damp hands, press the dough to the edges of the tray. Drizzle with olive oil, cover with a towel or cling film, and let rise again for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 230°c.
  • Decorate the focaccia as desired. Brush the vegetables lightly with olive oil and sprinkle with a little salt and pepper.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
