Place the tomatoes in a baking dish, drizzle with a little bit of olive oil (about 2 tablespoons) and herbes de provence and roast in the oven at 200° Celsius for about 20-25 minutes. This will depend on your oven, tomatoes needs to be beautifully roasted and that skin is easy to remove, the tomatoes are done.
Once it’s cooled off remove the skin and seeds. Chop the roasted tomato, set aside.
Heat a pan and place olive oil and onion. Cook for about ten minutes over low heat or until onions are soft and golden, set aside.
For the foccacia bread, put the flour on your working table and make a well in the middle and pour ¼ of the water that you have (you will have to control it depending on the consistency of your dough later).
Dissolve your yeast in a tablespoon of water and add it in the middle of the well. Add the salt, as much as possible avoid direct contact with the yeast. Start handling your dough, add more water if needed.
Knead the dough for about five to ten minutes or until the dough becomes elastic and does not stick to your hands anymore. Add about one tablespoon of herbes de provence directly to your dough. I love to do this because the flavor of the different herbes gets even better when cooked inside the bread.
Over a parchment paper, put directly the dough. Make a square shape depending on the size of your baking dish. Cover it with a towel and let the dough rise for minimum of an hour. Preheat the oven at 200° Celsius. Brush the surface with olive oil and put your roasted tomatoes and caramelized onion on the top. Sprinkle more herbes de provence.
Bake for about 30 minutes. It will be ready when the top becomes golden brown. Let it cool and cut the edges to have a perfect square. You can cut it the size and shape you want eventually.
