Focaccia time!

I’m all for easy bread recipes, and here is another one!  You’re welcome!


  • 205-230gr organic flour
  • 3ml salt
  • 5ml sugar
  • half a sachet instant dry yeast (±5gr)
  • 15ml olive oil
  • ±100ml warm water


  • 80ml olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon flaked salt
  • 1 teaspoon crushed garlic
  • sundried tomatoes or peppers
  • fresh rosemary
  • olives


  1. Sift the dry ingredients together in an electric bowl.
  2. Add the olive oil and warm water and slowly mix together for about 5 min.
  3. If it looks too runny, add tablespoons full of flour.  It should form an elastic and pliable dough ball.
  4. Cover the bowl with cling wrap and a kitchen towel and allow to double in size.
  5. Remove the dough from the bowl and knock it back on a lightly floured surface.  Using a rolling pin, roll it out about 1cm thick.
  6. Place onto a baking pan. (I used my pizza pan).  Cover loosely with a kitchen towel and allow to rise again for about 20 min.
  7. Make indentations with your fingertips and then add your toppings.
  8. You don’t have to use all the toppings mentioned above, however sticking to THREE, would be a good choice.  A focaccia isn’t a pizza.
  9. Pour only about 2/3 of the olive oil when adding y0ur toppings of choice.
  10. Bake in the oven at 200degC for about 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown.
  11. Serve straight out the oven!
