Apple-Walnut Focaccia


4 tablespoons chopped walnuts

1 medium baking-type apple, cored and chopped

2 oz. crumbled Gorganzola (or othe blue cheese)

2 tablespoons maple syrup

Olive Oil

Coarse sea salt

1 lb (grapefruit-sized) ball of your favorite pizza dough, homemade or purchased


Pre-heat the oven to 425F

Perpare a baking sheet, either by oiling it lightly or lining with parchement. Sprinkle with a little cornmeal.

Prepare dough, as for a small pizza. Place on prepared sheet, and poke about a dozen holes across the surface with a wooden skewer. Sprinkle lightly with olive oil (not to cover) and allow to rest/rise for 20 minutes.

Make topping:

Mix together walnuts, apples, cheese and maple syrup. Set aside.

After 20 minutes, sprinkle topping over dough, pressing in lightly. Don’t cover the dough completely – let some spaces show through.

Sprinkle a tiny bit of coarse sea salt over the foccacia.

Bake for 25 minutes.

Cool on a rack for 10 minutes. Serve warm.
