Basic Focaccia Recipe

Focaccia is a savory and tasty treat perfect for any meal. This baked flat bread is full of natural goodness. Learn how to make a basic simple focaccia with this easy recipe.

Serves: 8

Cooking Time: 25 min

Ingredients
  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 1/2 cup warm water, 105-110 degrees F
  • 4 cups all purpose flour, unbleached
  • 5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 teaspoons sea salt
Instructions
  1. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon yeast over 1/2 cup warm water in a large mixing bowl. Whisk it in and let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes. Stir in 3/4 cup flour. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and let stand until bubbly and doubled in volume, about 45 minutes.
     
  2. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon yeast over 1 cup warm water. Let stand until foamy, about 5-10 minutes. With a wooden spoon, stir the yeast mixture and 3 tablespoon olive oil into the sponge and mix well.
     
  3. Stir in 1 cup of the flour and 2 teaspoon salt. Stir in enough remaining flour to produce a soft dough.
     
  4. Knead on a lightly floured board until soft and smooth, about 6-8 minutes.
     
  5. Place dough in a lighly oiled bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let rise until doubled overnight in the fridge.
     
  6. Divide dough in half and press into two lightly oiled 9" round cake pans. If dough shrinks from the sides, let rest a few minutes then stretch it again. Cover with a towel and let rise in a warm place for 45 minutes or until dough is full of air bubbles.
     
  7. Just before baking, press your fingertips deep into the dough all over the surface to dimple the loaf. Drizzle with 2 tablespoon olive oil and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon sea salt.
     
  8. Bake at 425 degrees F for 20-25 minutes until top is golden. Remove from pan and cool on a wire rack.
