Bell pepper Focaccia with baked potato salad

Lena from Mein leckeres Leben (My Delicious Life) has come up with a new recipe for the grill season:

And this is how it's done.

INGREDIENTS (4 - 6 portions)

for the dough

  • 1 packet of dry yeast
  • 300 ml water, lukewarm
  • 50 ml of olive oil
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp of salt
  • 450 – 500 g spelled flour
  • olive oil



  • 4 red onions
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 2 tbsp raw cane sugar
  • 4 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • some fresh thyme or rosemary, finely chopped
  • Olive oil, salt
  • 3 peppers – red, yellow, orange


  1. For the dough: Mix the yeast, the water, the olive oil, honey and salt and flour and knead into a smooth dough. Cover the dough and let rise for about an hour.
  2. For the topping, cut the onion into strips and finely chop the garlic cloves. Sweat with olive oil in a pan. Add sugar and caramelize. Deglaze with balsamic vinegar and let simmer for about 5 minutes. Season with thyme or rosemary and salt. Allow to cool slightly.
  3. Cut the peppers into large strips.
  4. Place the dough on a floured work surface and lightly knead half of the balsamic onions into the dough (it can get a little sticky, but that’s how it should be). Shape the dough into a rectangle or two long flat cakes (about 2 cm thick).
  5. Brush a tray with olive oil and sprinkle with a little coarse sea salt. Place the dough on the baking sheet and let rise for another 20 minutes. Spread the remaining balsamic onions and the pepper strips on top and press them lightly into the batter. Press holes in the dough with your fingers and drizzle everything with olive oil.
  6. Bake the focaccia at 180 ° C for about 25-30 minutes until golden brown.
