Easy, Bouncy, and Delicious Focaccia

This recipe will make you famous at potlucks! Focaccia is so affordable to make, not to mention simple, but it feeds a crowd and is easily in the top ten most delicious foods on the planet. I promise. You need to try it!

I first posted the recipe on Instagram reels, but I've been meaning to put it on my blog for months. Reels are fun and give a glimpse at the incredible texture of this oily dough, but they're not as searchable and the recipe is in such tiny font. It was time to put this bread on the blog!

  • 2 1/4 tsp. quick rise yeast (or one packet)
  • 2 tsp. honey
  • 2½ cups lukewarm water
  • 5 cups flour (I use AP)
  • 1 tbs. salt
  • 10 tbsp. olive oil, seperated
  • any additional herbs for seasoning

  • Simply combine all the ingredients together in a large bowl, except the olive oil! 
  • Stir to make a shaggy, sticky dough. 
  • Once combined, stir in 5 tbsp olive oil to your dough.
  • Let the dough rise for 1 hour, covered with a plate or towel on your counter.
  • Once doubled in size, pour 5 more tbs. olive on top and place into a buttered 9x13 lasagna dish.
  • Spread to fill and then using your fingers, poke deep into the bread until the dough resembles a Montreal street 🚧
  • Season with herbs, salt, and pepper and brush with more olive oil (I used a garlic olive oil and thyme)
  • Bake at 450 for 15 minutes, or until top is nicely golden 🍞✨

  • To avoid the dough sticking to your hands, first rinse in cold water and leave them wet
  • If you use regular yeast and not quick rise, it will need 3-4 hours to rise
  • Sprinkle flaky sea salt and fresh herbs on baked bread for the best presentation
Let me know here or on Instagram if you've tried it!
