Focaccia (Italian flat bread)

Hi to all!!! Hope you are doing well. I wanted to post this a lot earlier, but somehow I was not able to upload any photos as Blogger seemed to have some issues. Luckily it is working now, so here comes the recipe.
Focaccia is an Italian flat bread and has become one of my favourite breads. It is perfect as a sandwich with tomatoes, mozzarella and fresh basil or it tastes good just by itself. Have a nice day…!!


- 2 cups unbleached white flour
- 3 ½ Tsp. active-dry yeast
- 2 Tsp. Salt
- 4 Tsp. Sugar
- 1 ¾ cups lukewarm water
- 6 Tbsp. Olive oil
- Coarse salt and oregano for sprinkling on top


In a large bowl mix flour with yeast, sugar and salt. Make a well in the middle and add 4 Tbsp. olive oil and the lukewarm water. With your hands knead to a smooth dough. If it’s too dry add little bit more water. The dough should not be sticky. Shape into a ball and cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Leave to rise in a warm place until about doubled in size.
In the meantime preheat oven to 400 F.
Grease a baking tray and place the dough on it. Flatten and poke the dough with your fingers to make small holes. Brush the remaining olive oil on top and sprinkle some coarse salt and oregano on top. Bake for about 25 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
