Hey everyone! This week we’re doing a theme set on global street food! I wanted to take an Italian recipe called Focaccia de Recco and make it gluten free. For those who don’t know, focaccia is a type of thin bread traditionally found in Italy. The variation on this one is that it is filled with soft cow’s milk cheese. Traditionally a Stracchino cheese is used, but I find that any soft cow’s milk cheese will work in the recipe.
Check out all of the recipes this week from around the world! And be sure to join us Sunday at 7pm EST for the twitter chat! Just search #SundaySupper to join!

Grab a Thermos 

Prep Time 15 minutes
Bake Time 12 minutes


3/4 cupsweet rice flour
1/4 cuptapioca starch
1/2 cupalmond flour
1/4 tspxantham gum
1/4 cupolive oil
1/2 cup and 3 tbspwater
1/2 lbsoft cow's milk cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 550F. Line a baking pan with aluminum foil and oil it.

  2. In a bowl, mix the flours, gum and oil together until well combined. Add in the water and stir until a dough forms and you can shape it into a ball. Separate the ball in half, and roll each half within 1/8 inch thickness between two sheets of parchment paper. Transfer the sheet to the baking pan.

  3. Cube the cheese, and place on top of the dough sheet.

  4. Roll out the other half of the dough, making it slightly larger than the previous. Lay it over top the cheese, and press on the edges to seal them. Drizzle more olive oil over top, and bake in the oven for 12 minutes. Cut and serve warm.

    I am continually amazed at how you can transform a regular bread or recipe to gluten-free. Lots of happy people out there because of you. Now they can have this awesome cheesy focaccia. Well done!

    Thank you! After you’ve done it for long enough you get a better idea of what flours work well together, and how much gum is needed for a recipe. For this one I use just as much gum is needed to help bind the dough together.
