Beginner's Focaccia


Warm, fragrant focaccia fresh from the oven.  So easy and so good! 

Easy Serves
SKILL LEVEL 13 x 9-inch pan
3-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 (2-1/4 tsp.) packet Fleischmann's® Quick Rise Yeast
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 cups water
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
3 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese
1-1/2 teaspoons Italian herb seasoning

Combine flour, dry yeast, sugar and salt in a large mixing bowl and stir until blended. Combine water and 2 tablespoons olive oil in a 2-cup glass measuring cup OR microwave-safe bowl.  Microwave on HIGH in 15 second increments until very warm but not hot to the touch (120° to 130°F).   Add to flour mixture.  Stir with a spoon until well mixed.

Spread into greased  13 x 9-inch pan . (Don’t worry if the dough isn’t even or filling the corners.)  Cover with towel; let rise in warm place  until doubled in size, about 30 minutes .

Using your lightly oiled finger, gently poke holes about every inch in the dough going nearly to the bottom of the dough.  Drizzle with remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil; evenly sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and Italian herbs.  Let rise, uncovered, an additional 15 minutes while oven preheats to 375°F.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly.  Cut and serve with extra oil for dipping if you’d like.
