Mushroom Sage Focaccia

  • Yield: 8 servings


1cup all-purpose flour
1/2cup whole wheat flour
1teaspoon yeast
1 1/4teaspoons salt, divided
2tablespoons olive oil, divided
1/2cup water
1cup sliced shiitake mushrooms
1tablespoon diced shallot
1tablespoon fresh chopped sage


  1. Mix together flours, yeast, and salt in a large bowl or stand mixer. Slowly add 1 tablespoon olive oil and the water while stirring the dry ingredients. Once the dough comes mostly together in a large ball, work it together with your hands, then turn out onto a floured surface. Knead dough to form a smooth ball, then place in a greased bowl. Cover and let rise until doubled in bulk; about two hours.
  2. Punch down dough and turn out onto a floured surface. Roll out dough into a large circle or rectangle and let rest.
  3. Meanwhile, heat a small saucepan over medium. Add ½ tablespoon olive oil and heat through. Add the mushrooms, shallot, and sage, and saute until the mushrooms are softened and fragrant, about 5 minutes.
  4. Make indentations in the dough using your fingers, then drizzle remaining olive oil over the top. Scatter mushroom mixture over thedough, then sprinkle on remaining salt.
  5. Bake at 375F on a pizza stone or greased baking sheet 35 to 45 minutes, until golden brown.
