Method

  1. Mix together flour, yeast, salt and sugar. Add water, oil and mix to form soft dough. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead for 5 mins. Put back in the bowl and cover with a tea towel. Leave to rise for 1 hr.
  2. Heat oven to 240C/220C fan/gas 8. Fry onions for 5 mins in the oil until slightly softened. Strip leaves from 1 rosemary sprig, finely chop and add to the onions. Knead half the onions into the risen dough – add more flour if sticky. Divide dough in 2 and shape into 25cm long rectangles. Place on a floured baking sheet and brush lightly with water. Use a sharp knife to cut 1 diagonal slash through the dough, then 3 slashes either side to make leaf markings. Open out slashes slightly, then press the remaining onions, tomatoes and rosemary
  3. Leave to rise for 15 mins, then bake for 15-20 mins until risen and golden brown.

Really tasty and easy to make. I used sundried tomatoes instead of cherry tomatoes and cut them into strips. I also drizzled the top of the fougasse with some of the oil that the tomatoes came in just before it was to go in the oven which intensified the tomato flavour even more. Definatly worth making!
