Focaccia bread

I always think of focaccia as the perfect bread for dipping or dunking into soups or sauces, soaking up flavored oils, as a vehicle for getting those last bits of yummy goodies on your plate into your mouth.

And while this focaccia bread absolutely does all that, this focaccia recipe is so delicious that you will want to stack your plate with fluffy, soft yet crusty, slices instead of whatever the main course is.

This focaccia bread recipe is seriously that good.

My faster no-knead bread recipe is usually my favorite bread recipe, but this focaccia recipe just might have bumped it out of first position.

(This whole wheat olive loaf is also really delicious!)

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Resting time 2 hours
Total Time 2 hours 25 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose or bread flour
  • ¼ cup olive oil, divided
  • 1 cup warm water, not hot
  • 2 ¼ tsp instant yeast
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • ½ tsp sea salt, + more for sprinkling on top

Instructions

  1. In a mixing bowl, measure out the flour, yeast, sugar, and ½ tsp salt.
  2. Pour in 2 tablespoons of olive oil and the 1 cup of warm water.
  3. If you’re using an electric mixer, use the dough hook attachment, and mix on medium speed just until the dough comes together (a minute).
  4. If you’re making this focaccia recipe by hand, stir until everything comes together or use your hands until dough is smooth (only a minute - you don't need to knead this).
  5. Cover the bowl of dough with saran and let the dough rest for ~1 hour until doubled in size.
  6. Spread 1 tablespoon of olive oil into a 9x13” baking pan.
  7. Stretch the dough out until it fills the whole baking pan, cover with saran and let rise for 1 hour.
  8. Near the end of the hour, preheat your oven to 425 F.
  9. When the hour is up, remove the plastic wrap, and use your fingers to poke dimples in the dough.
  10. Drizzle the last tablespoon of olive oil over the focaccia dough, and sprinkle the top with sea salt.
  11. Bakeat 425 F for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown on top.  
  12. My oven took 17 minutes but check after 15 minutes because ovens vary and it depends on the pan you’re using as well.
  13. Remove from the pan, cut into 12 pieces, and devour this amazing focaccia bread.

No-knead focaccia really is easy and so delicious! I'm sure you will love it when you make it. Hopefully you have no trouble finding yeast - I know it's been hit and miss here in stores.
