FocacciaOnce you try this whole wheat focaccia, you'll never go back to white flour versions.
Add wheat berries to Kitchen Mill, and grind into flour; set aside.
Add water, yeast, and honey to WildSide jar and secure lid. Press "Pulse" 2 times. Allow yeast to proof for 5–10 minutes.
Add salt, applesauce or oil, and vital wheat gluten to jar. Secure lid and pulse 2 times. Add one third of milled flour to jar, secure lid, and pulse 1 time. Add another third of the flour, secure lid and pulse 3–5 times. Add last third of flour, secure lid, and pulse 8–10 times or until all flour is incorporated and dough ball forms. Let rest 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400°F. Turn dough onto floured board, and knead for 1 minute. With your thumbs, make a hole in center of dough; place in mixing bowl that has been sprinkled with flour. Cover with plastic wrap, and let rise until doubled.
Place dough on lightly floured board; roll and stretch dough into 8-inch circle. Place on baking sheet sprinkled with cornmeal, and set aside to rise until puffy, about 10 minutes. Spritz with cooking spray, and sprinkle with coarse salt.
Just before baking, press fingertips into dough to make deep dimples. Bake for 15–20 minutes or until golden brown. Tear into chunks, or serve in wedges.
