Methods Explained in Detail

  • Step No 1

    In the bowl of a food mixer fitted with the dough hook, combine the flour, yeast, and a sprinkle of fine salt for the focaccia. Slowly pour in the water, followed by the olive oil, while the engine is running. Knead for 5 minutes, or until the dough is soft, smooth, and elastic. If you want, you may knead the dough by hand, which will take around 10 minutes. Cover the dough with cling film after placing it in a lightly greased basin. Allow for an hour or two of proofing time, or until the dough has doubled in size.

  • Step No 2

    Lightly grease a large baking sheet and transfer the dough to it, pushing it out with your hands until it’s about 24cm square and 1cm thick. Allow to prove for another 30 minutes, uncovered and at room temperature.

  • Step No 3

    Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C Fan/Gas Mark 6 (200°C/180°C Fan/Gas Mark 6). Drizzle a large amount of olive oil over the dough after poking deep finger holes all over it. Finish with a sprinkling of sea salt before baking for 20–25 minutes, or until brown. When you touch the bottom of the bread, it should sound hollow. Allow it cool on a wire rack before slicing down the center to make two thin squares.

  • Step No 4

    To make the olive salad, combine all of the ingredients in a dish and season with black pepper to taste; the olives should provide enough salt. Spread the salad evenly between the two pieces of bread, reaching the edges. Start stacking the fillings on one side of the bread, being careful to get all the way to the edges. I begin with a layer of provolone, followed by coppa and salami finocchiona, scamorza, salami ventricina piccante, and lastly mortadella. Place the second slice of bread on top and firmly push it down. Wrap the whole filled loaf in cling film and leave aside for a couple of hours at room temperature to allow the flavors to mix. Unwrap and cut into tidy squares to serve.
