    Ingredients for 9 people

    To prepare focaccia bread

    • 250 g 00 flour
    • 2 tablespoons seed oil or olive oil
    • 100 g water
    • 1 tablespoon salt
    • a pinch of sugar
    • 6 g instant yeast for salted pies 

    To prepare the filling

    • 2 courgettes
    • 200 g smoked scamorza cheese or other stretched curd cheese

    Directions

    1. Wash and chop the courgettes. Let it brown for 5 minutes on a non-stick frying pan with a thread of oil. Courgettes should be crispy, not soft. Once cooked, keep aside and allow cooling.
    2. Chop cheese and keep aside.
    3. Pour flour, yeast, salt and sugar into a bowl. Make a hole in the middle and add oil and water.
    4. Knead until you get a soft and elastic dough.
    5. Transfer onto a floured surface and roll out the dough. Make 8 cm circles with a coppapasta or a biscuit cutter.
    6. Fill the dough discs with some chopped courgettes and chopped scamorza. Close with another disc, sealing the edges. Make sure you seal well.
    7. Pour the small focaccias on a lightly oiled non-stick frying pan.
    8. Cook for 2 minutes on a moderate flame and turn, then cover with cover with a lid, as this helps leavening. Once ready, serve warm.
