Focaccia Bread Recipe – Quick and Easy to Make

Focaccia bread seemed daunting to make. Maybe it was the fact that the focaccia bread recipe called for rolling the dough (I couldn’t just stuff the focaccia dough into a pan and call it done), or maybe it was the focaccia bread’s many dimples (imagine each one hides an eyeball and try to sleep at night).  My focaccia bread fears, however, were unfounded. Focaccia bread, I learned, is easier to make than many other breads and it is fast to prepare (well, fast for bread).  Because it’s not a tall bread, it only needs to rise for thirty minutes.

Once the focaccia bread is complete, you can eat it plain or treat it like a pizza – top it with your favorite toppings and bake for a few minutes.  I topped mine with fig spread, grilled onions, and goat cheese (there’s a huge hint in this sentence about my next cupcake flavor and the Flavor Bible contest winner).

  3. I love making focaccia bread. It really is one of the easiest breads to make and quick, too, for a yeast bread. Your focaccia looks perfect. I love how strategically you placed the holes, oil, and rosemary.

  4. I found a history of Focaccia Bread. It’s a member of a family of common Mediterranean and Middle-Eastern flat breads. I had know idea it had so many uses and was so good for you. I included the link.

  5. Deannasays:

    Just made this – yuuuuuuuum. Nice and easy. We ate it alone so I topped it with garlic powder, oregano, basil, thyme, black pepper and parmesan cheese before baking it. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Brookesays:

    I made this and added my own topping to it and shared it for supper with my mom. It was so good. Thank you for posting such easy-to-follow directions! I’m definitely going to put this in my own recipe collection!
