I once again The dough I used is Jim Lahey’s recipe (click for step-by-step instructions) for amazing no-knead pizza dough. King Arthur Flour has a step-by-step photo and instruction for this easy to prepare the dough. This is the same recipe I used to create the Delicata Squash Sage Burrata Pizza I posted a while back on my blog. The dough makes a crisp and light focaccia. No knead Delicata Sage Focaccia would be a fun addition to your Thanksgiving feast.
Slice about 1/4-inch thick and place on a baking sheet that has been drizzled with olive oil. Toss the squash to coat in oil. Lightly salt and pepper. Place in a 350 F oven and back for about 8-10 minutes or until beginning to brown.
Drizzle a 6-inch cake pan with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Add the prepared dough then drizzle with a bit more olive oil.
Top with slices of roasted Delicata squash, pumpkins seeds, and chopped sage. Cover with aluminum foil and crimp the edges to make a tight seal. Place in a preheated 424F degree oven and bake for 15 minutes. Remove foil and bake for an additional 10 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and carefully lift focaccia out of baking pan and place on a cooling rack for about 10 minutes. Great served warm.
I drizzled my focaccia with a bit of honey then served with this wonderful honeycomb from my wonderful neighbors.
