    step 1

    Put in a large container the oil, water and yeast (yeast, poolish or sourdough) and mix

    step 2

    Add the flour, mix and rest for 30 minutes in the refrigerator, during this time the autolysis process will take place. This process will help the development of our dough. Once the 30 minutes have passed, we add the salt to our dough and integrate it.

    step 3

    Put your hand in water and then proceed to take the dough from the top side.

    step 4

    Stretch the dough without breaking it and bring it to the bottom side.

    step 5

    take the bottom side and bring it to the top side.

    step 6

    take the left side and bring it to the right side.

    step 7

    take the right side and take it to the left side.

    step 8

    Rest in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

    step 9

    Repeat the steps and rest 30 minutes in the refrigerator again at least 3 times . With each fold we see that the dough is taking strength and tension.

    step 10

    Cover and rest 24 to 72 hours in the refrigerator.

    step 11

    Put olive oil generously on the entire surface of the baking tray. Put the dough directly on the baking tray without degassing. Stretch the dough carefully. In case the dough is elastic let it rest for 20 minutes and try again. Leave the dough rise for 1 hour.t

    step 12

    With the tips of our fingers we make holes in the whole dough (without perforating the dough).

    step 13

    Emulsify 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 2 tablespoons of water. Paint our dough with this emulsion. We can put rosemary, salt flakes and black pepper.

    step 14

    At this point we can add our favorite ingredients. For example black olives..

    step 15

    Cook in an oven at 482° F (250° C) for 20 minutes. After removing from the oven, the focaccia must be placed on a wire rack and let cool.
