Sourdough Focaccia: Version 2

This sourdough focaccia bread is amazingly soft, airy, and flavorful. This dough requires a proper kneading at the beginning and the same mixing method from my first sourdough focaccia recipe – stretch and fold. You can see how I did my second version in my video here.

Your fermentation times may vary depending on a lot of different factors. Use these times for the folding and the duration of the Bulk Fermentation only as a guideline. Learn to watch your dough and not the clock.
