How To Make Fougasse

This savory bread is the French version of the focaccia bread. Make this fougasse at home with home and add more herbs for a well-rounded layer of flavors.

Preparation: 13 minutes
Cooking: 20 minutes
Rising Time: 1 hour
Total: 1 hour 33 minutes

Serves:

Ingredients

  • cupswarm water
  • 1tspactive dry yeast
  • 4cupsall-purpose flour
  • ½tbspbasil,dried
  • ½tbspground savory
  • ½tbspthyme,dried
  • ½tbsprosemary,dried
  • 2tbspsea salt
  • 4tbspolive oil,divided
  • 2tbspcornmeal

Instructions

  1. Pour water into a large bowl. Sprinkle yeast into the water, and let it stand undisturbed until dissolved.

  2. Stir in flour, herbs, sea salt, and 2 tablespoons of oil until well blended. Mix in the flour, 1 cup at a time until a thick and somewhat sticky dough forms.

  3. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead until smooth and elastic. Form into a ball, and place into an oiled bowl. Flip the dough to coat the surface.

  4. Cover the bowl with a clean dishtowel, and let it rise until doubled for about 1 hour.

  5. Punch dough down, and divide in half. Shape into irregular ovals, about 1½-inch thick. Sprinkle cornmeal over 2 baking sheets; transfer the dough to pans.

  6. Brush each loaf with the remaining olive oil, and sprinkle the remaining herbs on top.

  7. Make several slashes in the bread, cutting through the dough with a knife. Cover the loaves with clean dishtowels. Let rise again until the dough begins to rise again, about 20 minutes.

  8. Place baking sheets into a preheated 450 degrees F oven.

  9. Quickly splash a small amount of water onto the floor of your oven to create steam, and close the oven door. Bake until golden, about 20 minutes.
