Best Gluten-free Focaccia

Celebrate Spring with my favorite authentic Italian Flat Bread, an easy comfort food for everybody, including any alternative diet. This quick gluten-free, grain-free Paleo Pizza is so satisfying that it transports me to Tuscany. A great crust recipe for your favorite topping, 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. The subtle flavors of toasted onion and olive oil were a hit! No equipment needed. Makes a 12-inch focaccia.




    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


  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!
