Best Gluten-free Focaccia

Authentic Italian focaccia is a comfort food for me. This easy gluten-free, grain-free Paleo Pizza is so satisfying that I’m back in Tuscany. A great base for your favorite toppings, this is delicious with onions, veggies, or even plain. I like to enjoy warm focaccia instead of bread as a quick snack or side dish. We ate it last night with Paleo Meatloaf and green salad. The subtle flavors of onion and olive oil were a hit! No equipment needed. Makes a 12-inch focaccia.

Ingredients

    Olive Oil Glaze:
  • 1 tablespoon filtered water
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • Onion Topping:
  • 1 large onion, sliced very very thin.
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Coarse unprocessed salt
  • Focaccia:
  • 1 1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons almond meal or flour
  • 1/2 cup arrowroot powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon unprocessed salt
  • 1 clove garlic (optional)
  • 2 large eggs, See The Best Eggs are Pasture-raised Organic
  • 3/4 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 º. Get out a tray and either grease it, or put parchment paper on it.
  2. Make Olive Oil Glaze:
  3. In a small bowl, stir together the water, oil, and salt. Set aside.
  4. Onions:
  5. If you're using onions, in a large skillet over medium heat, add olive oil. Add onion, salt and sauté until they begin to soften. Meanwhile make the dough. When onions begin to get soft, remove from heat and set aside
  6. Focaccia Dough:
  7. In a medium mixing bowl or food processor, add almond meal, arrowroot, baking soda, salt and garlic, if using. Mix well.
  8. Add eggs, vinegar, and olive oil. Mix until it is a coherent dough. Form into a ball.
  9. Put the ball of dough on the baking pan and with your hands press it flat into 12-inch round or equivalent rectangle or square. The dough should be about 1/3 inch thick. Make dimples with your fingers if you wish.
  10. Pour the glaze over the dough and rub it in with your fingers. If you're using onions, put them on top and spread evenly.
  11. Bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes, or until barely golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool on a rack. Cut into pieces and enjoy!
