October 30, 2019Sew White

My Parma Ham and Peach Focaccia Party Bites are so easy to make and perfect for a party as you can make them earlier in the day and serve when needed.

Party season is sneaking up on us and I’ve been creating some delicious and slightly healthier alternative to nibbles. My Focaccia Party Bites topped with Parma Ham and Peaches are the perfect sharer. It is a mix of soft bread that compliments the creamy mozzarella, fruity peaches and salty ham. Plus with the fresh thyme you get that green earthiness that hits all the senses.

Doesn’t this look incredible!

I have eaten so much of these focaccia bites already. They are delicious bites and way to easy to keep having a few more as a party goes on. They were definitely a hit with my guests who loved the mix of flavours. Plus also that they were seems a more health party nibble. Having the fresh peaches added a sweet touch that takes it away from being more like a pizza to something much more elegant I think.

Ingredients

Focaccia

  • 250 g strong white flour
  • 5 g salt
  • 5 g instant yeast
  • 80 ml olive oil
  • 180 ml water
  • fresh rosemary

Toppings

  • 2 mozzarella balls
  • Parma Ham
  • 4 Peaches
  • Olive Oil
  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • Fresh thyme

Instructions

Focaccia

  1. Add the flour to a mixing bowl with the salt on one side and the yeast on the other. Add half of the olive oil and three quarters of the water and mix it with the flour with your hand. Add the water a little at a time until the dough is coming together. Don't add all the water if you don't need it. It will be a little wetter than normal doughs but not too much.

  2. Add the remaining olive oil to the work surface and knead the dough into it for 5-10 minutes until the dough is soft and elastic.

  3. Add oil to a baking tray and leave the dough to rise for about 1 hour and until at least doubled in size.

  4. Drizzle more olive oil on to the work top and gentle move the dough on to it. Try not to remove the air from the dough. Stretch the dough out add it to an oil greased baking tray. Leave for another hour to rise again.

  5. Preheat the oven to 200ºC. Press your fingers into the dough to make dimples. Drizzle with a little extra olive oil and sprinkle with chunky salt and stud with the fresh rosemary.

  6. Bake for 15 minutes until golden brown. When you tap the bottom of the focaccia it should sound hollow. Leave to cool.

Toppings

  1. Cut up the focaccia into bitesize pieces.

  2. Pull apart the Parma ham add a piece to each piece.

  3. Top with pieces of mozarella and slices of fresh peach.

  4. Sprinkle the fresh thyme over the pieces.

  5. Drizzle a little olive oil and baslamic vinegar when you are ready to serve.

Homemade golden Focaccia cut up into pieces topped up with parma ham, peach slices, mozzarella and decorated with thyme and drizzled with olive oil. Easy Party Bites.

    What I really like is how easy this looks, as well as delicious. Plus the option of cheating with a ready-made focaccia!5 stars

      An easy cheat but it will still taste pretty darn good.

      They work so well together. It’s great getting to be used in a different way.
