La Focaccia Recipe

I’ll create a classic version of Focaccia with a touch of rosemary.

You can skip it if you like and add any toppings you fancy – tomatoes, olives, capers, anything goes.

focaccia recipe


  • 1 x Pizza dough
  • 5-6 Sprigs rosemary
  • Rock/Sea salt
  • Extra Virgin olive oil


  1. Place the pizza dough on a large baking tray, shaped to mimic the tray, and cover with three to four tablespoons of olive oil.
  2. Allow the dough to rise in a warm place, doubling in size for 1-1.5 hours.
  3. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  4. Remove the dough, spread it out in the tray, and brush with more oil. Sprinkle salt over the top.
  5. Let the dough rest and rise for another 30 minutes.
  6. Press fingertips into the dough to create characteristic holes, then pour four tablespoons of olive oil into the holes and let it rise for an additional 30 minutes.
  7. Sprinkle rosemary leaves over the dough, wet your hand, and flick water over the top to keep it moist.
  8. Bake for 10-15 minutes.
  9. Serve the focaccia on a board or grill, and enjoy with your favorite antipasti.

Buon Appetito!
