Jenn cooked our first bread item on the new Grill Dome Kamado the other night and she chose to cook some super yummy focaccia rolls. Ceramic kamados are popular for baking breads and pizzas because they can easily cook in the 400°-500° range (and much hotter) and they are similar to cooking in a traditional stone-fired masonry oven because you have the ability to cook your breads/pizzas on a ceramic stone that’s inside of a cooker made with thick, ceramic walls. The ceramic material is one of the best materials for evenly distributing heat and therefore produces amazing baked goods and pizzas.
One important item to note here is that you should always place your cold pizza stone on your ceramic kamado and let it come up to temp with your cooker. Placing a cold ceramic pizza stone on a very hot, preheated kamado could potentially crack the stone via thermal shocking.
OK, now on to the focaccia rolls. This recipe is really straight forward and the rolls go great alongside a kamado baked pizza! Ingredients, pics and video are below. Enjoy!
1 can Pillsbury Breadsticks Original
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp Parmesan cheese
1 tsp herb blend (Jenn used a garlic rosemary blend)
1 tsp minced onion
Mozzarella cheese (just enough to sprinkle on top of each roll)
Whether you’re baking these in the oven or in a ceramic kamado like Jenn used in the video below, I recommend you use a ceramic baking stone. Get the oven or kamado preheated to 375° making sure to heat the baking stone up with the oven/kamado. Again, do NOT put a cold baking stone on a very hot preheated oven/kamado.
Open the Pillsbury can making sure you don’t unroll them. Instead, break off the individual coils of dough (as Jenn shows in the video) and press them down into 3″-4″ rounds on a greased pan.
Next, mix together the olive oil, Parmesan cheese, minced onion and herb blend and cover each roll with the mixture. Now sprinkle the rolls with some mozzarella.
Baked them for about 15 minutes on the ceramic stone in the oven/kamado until they have a nice, light brown color. Serve warm. Enjoy!
