Original recipe yields 4 to 6 servings



  1. In a large bowl, dissolve honey and yeast in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
  2. Add 1 cup flour, salt, and 3 tablespoons olive oil to the yeast mixture. Stir until combined and then work in the last cup of flour. Knead the dough until smooth, elastic, and soft, about 7 minutes. Add only enough flour to keep the dough from being sticky. Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.
  3. Deflate the dough and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Roll out the dough into a rectangle, about 1/2 inch thick. Place in greased 9x13 inch pan or baking sheet. Cover and let rise until doubled in volume, about 40 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  4. Poke dimples in the bread and drizzle 1 tablespoon of the olive oil on top. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.

This is a great recipe! So simple, and easy to follow. No guessing here! I've tried a few focaccia recipes on this site, and I like this one for the great directions. Plus it doesn't use a bread machine, as so many other recipes on here do. My only complaint is that it doesn't make enough! :) I will double the recipe next time, as this one was gone in no time here (and it's just me, my hubby, and my two kids- a 3 yr. old and a one yr. old!) I almost passed this recipe up before because it looked too simple, but that was easily modified by adding a teapsoon of Italian Seasoning herb blend, and 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder. I used half whole wheat for this recipe. Served with Slow Cooker Creamy Potato Soup. I'm glad I tried this recipe; I will be making it again!



This was not difficult at all to make. It was worth the work. The seven minutes of kneading really paid off. I topped it with chopped garlic and fresh rosemary, and baked it on the pizza stone. My husband practically ate the whole thing himself.



This bread is just as the title says "Fantastic". I quadrupled it, the amount of yeast I used was 1 1/2 teas. of SAF brand yeast. I dimpled the surface of the bread and poured on the olive oil and then put on pieces of roasted red and yellow pepper and then sprinkled with Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper. It was too good!!!
