Gluten-free focaccia

Delicious gluten-free focaccia

Italian-style sai focaccia is in front of you in a brand new month! While classic focaccia is both flour and yeast free, this recipe is both yeast and gluten free! In fact, this focaccia is completely grain-free, containing only cassava and almond flours and a few tasty herbs. It may look a little different at first glance, but it tastes amazing and is definitely worth a try. If you’re a sausage fan, this is an absolute must. Preparation is easy and there is nothing complicated. Just the hassle of mixing it together, and then a little patience while the pastry cooks and needs to cool a little afterwards.

How to make gluten-free focaccia?

Preheat the oven to 220 degrees. Then start making the dough. In one bowl, mix all the dry ingredients and seasonings, while in the other mix the oil, maple syrup, water and lemon juice. Pour the liquid mixture into the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. When the dough is ready, place it on a baking tray lined with baking paper and add any garnishes you like, such as cherry tomatoes cut in half, salted flakes and dried thyme. Then place the focaccia in the oven to bake. Bake the pastry at 220 degrees for 20-22 minutes. When the focaccia is ready, be sure to let it cool completely before cutting it open. Then slice and enjoy!
