Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it rest for 2 hours Now you can add the rest of the ingredients to the “liquid pre-dough” by sifting the flours. Work with a fork until you get a well mixed dough.
Cover the mold you have chosen for cooking with baking paper. Pour the mixture into the mold and let it rest for another hour. Bake the focaccia at 180°C for 20 minutes, until the surface is pleasantly golden.
