- 400ml water

- 7g instant yeast

- 1 tsp sugar

- 1 tbsp Butterfly Pea Powder

- 4 tbsp olive oil

- 2 tsp salt

- 400g strong bread flour

- Whole garlic cloves

- Black olives, pitted

- Fresh rosemary

- Pickled red onions (optional)


- In a large mixing bowl, combine water, yeast, and sugar.

- Let it sit for 5 minutes until foamy.

- Stir in pea flower powder, olive oil, and salt and use a squeeze of lemon to turn the colour from blue to purple.

- Gradually add flour, mixing until combined but do not overwork.

- Cover the bowl with a wax wrapping cloth and let the dough proof for 30 minutes.

- After the first proof, fold the dough from four corners towards the middle. Let it proof for another 30 minutes. Use olive oil on your hands to prevent sticking.

- After the second proof, knead the dough on a surface to create a round shape like a bread loaf. Place it in a greased baking pan, cover, and refrigerate overnight.

- The next day, take the dough out of the fridge and let it come to room temperature. Allow it to proof until doubled in size.

- Preheat the oven to 250°C (480°F).

- Drizzle olive oil over the dough and scatter whole garlic cloves, black olives, and fresh rosemary on top. - Use your fingers to press the dough and create some holes for the olive oil to penetrate it.

- Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes until golden brown and cooked through.

- Remove from the oven and top with pickled red onions. Slice and serve your delicious Purple Focaccia with a vibrant topping!
