Carbalose Flour Focaccia
Print
Ingredients
  1. 2¼ C Carbalose Flour
  2. ¼ C Wheat Gluten
  3. ¼ C Coconut Flour
  4. ¼ C Golden Flaxseed Meal
  5. 1 t Salt
  6. ¼ t Guar Gum
  7. ¼ t Xanthan Gum
  8. 1¼ C Warm Water
  9. 1½ T Yeast
  10. 1 t Sugar
  11. 7 Drops Liquid Sucralose*
  12. ½ C Olive Oil
  13. 2 t Minced Garlic
  14. 1 t Dried Basil
  15. 1 t Dried Rosemary
  16. ½ t Dried Thyme
  17. ½ t Dried Oregano
  18. ¼ t Salt
  19. ¼ t Pepper
Instructions
  1. Bloom yeast with sugar in 1 cup warm water for 10 minutes.
  2. Put first 7 ingredients in processor and turn on just to blend.
  3. Mix olive oil, spices, garlic, salt & pepper and heat on low 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add ½ olive oil mixture to dry ingredients and pulse machine several times.
  5. Add liquid Sucralose to bloomed yeast and with machine running add to dry ingredients.
  6. Run processor for at least a minute and probably a little longer adding any additional water as needed-this should be about ¼ C more. You want to make sure there is enough water. Dough should have a loose consistency and will not be sticky on your hands. At this point the dough should have the same look and feel of regular bread.
  7. Form into 2 balls, put in un-greased bowls and cover with film for about 30 minutes until doubled.
  8. Turn out dough onto lightly floured counter and keeping their shapes, roll into big 1 ½” thick circles and put onto sheet pan lined with parchment paper, or better yet your Silpat.
  9. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  10. Drizzle and brush rest of olive oil mixture all over both tops.
  11. Let rise 15-20 minutes. Do not over proof as it will raise more in the oven and Focaccia is a relatively flat bread. Using your finger tips make “dimples” all over dough.
  12. Bake 15-20 minutes or until light golden brown.
  13. Cut each round into 8 traditional “pie wedges”.

Notes
  1. Please note the use *Sucralose in each of the recipes using Carbalose is only to negate the bitter taste of the flour and DOES NOT make the recipe “sweet”.
  2. You may also add black, green, or kalamata olives, thin slices of fresh tomato, slivered onions, & maybe a little parmesan or mozzarella cheese and...this already seems suspiciously like pizza. Um Yum-Oh Boy.
  3. You do not necessarily need to make this into rounds as it can be formed into any shape you wish and no matter the shape, it is terrific dipped in olive oil.
