Preparation

Fry the Speck Alto Adige PGI cubes lightly in a pan. In a bowl, mix both flours and make a well in the center. Crumble the fresh yeast into the well and mix it with a bit of lukewarm water. Let proof for about 15 minutes at room temperature. Add the salt, sugar, Speck Alto Adige PGI cubes and the remaining water and knead into a smooth dough. Let rise for about 2 hours. Pat the dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet, making small wells in the dough with fingertips. Drizzle with olive oil and bake in a steam oven at 180°C for 25 minutes. Cut the focaccia into pieces and serve as a snack with the Speck Alto Adige PGI slices and tomatoes.

You can also add finely minced herbs such as rosemary or thyme to the dough. In absence of a steam oven, simply place a small pan of water on the floor of a normal oven.
