I think of all my gluten-free recipes, the Gluten Free Rolls is one of my most used and favorites. It is so flexible and quick to make. It does take a bit of time to rise, sometimes up to 2 hours depending on kitchen temps, but still its fast and easy. You can whip it up in a few minutes, and then shape it into whatever you want, let it rise while you do several other things around the house! Then bake and hide. . . . yes, hide. . . Once the rolls are done baking, you may have to hide them until dinner is served or there won't be any left!
I have used this recipe for hot dog buns, hamburger buns, rolls for meatball sandwiches, flat bread, pizza crust and my latest - focaccia! I wanted to share photos with you of the process, because this one was a bit different than just molding into the shape for the desired rolls. I will have to upload those later after I make another batch because it was so good with the basil, oregano, garlic, onion, and olive oil that it didn't stick around long enough for a finished photo.
In the mean time, what you will need to mix up the focaccia is:
The Recipe for Gluten Free Dinner Rolls and add
3/4 tsp dry basil
1/2 tsp dry oregano
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
More or less to personal taste.
Add the dry herbs and spices to the dry ingredients of the Dinner Roll Recipe and mix well. Mix as usual and the set aside while you grease a baking sheet or stone. The dough will be soft. Olive oil works wonderful for the pan and adds great flavor to the bottom of the Focaccia.
Place the dough on the baking sheet. Wet hands and spread the dough out a little bit, then cover with a piece of parchment paper. Using your hands or a rolling pin on top of the parchment, work the dough out toward the edges until it is about 1/2-5/8 inch thick. carefully remove the parchment - it will likely stick, so pull back carefully to try avoiding tearing the dough. Allow to rise for 45-60 minutes (Some days I allow it to rise for up to two hours if it's chilly). Brush gently with olive oil and, if desired, sprinkle with parmesan. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 15-18 minutes. Cut into desired sized pieces and serve warm with soups, pastas, casseroles, or just enjoy!
