Focaccia with Rosemary













  • 500g all-purpose flour

  • 7g active dry yeast

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1 tsp sugar

  • 350ml warm water

  • 50ml extra virgin olive oil

  • Fresh rosemary

  • Coarse sea salt


  1. Combine the flour, yeast, salt, and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Mix well.

  2. Slowly add the warm water to the flour mixture, stirring constantly until the dough comes together.

  3. Knead the dough for about 10 minutes until it is smooth and elastic.

  4. Place the dough in a greased bowl and cover with a damp towel. Let the dough rest in a warm, draft-free place for 1 hour.

  5. Preheat your oven to 200°C (390°F).

  6. Grease a large baking sheet with olive oil.

  7. Transfer the dough to the baking sheet and use your hands to flatten it out to about 1 cm thickness.

  8. Press your fingers into the dough to create dimples.

  9. Drizzle the dough with olive oil and sprinkle with rosemary and coarse sea salt.

  10. Let the dough rest for an additional 30 minutes.

  11. Bake the focaccia in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

  12. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly before slicing and serving.


  • Be sure to use warm water when making the dough, which will help activate the yeast.

  • You can use dried rosemary instead if you don't have fresh rosemary.

  • Add chopped fresh rosemary to the dough before kneading for a more pronounced rosemary flavour.

  • Be sure to let the dough rest for at least 30 minutes before baking, as it will help it rise and become light and airy.

  • To serve, drizzle the focaccia with olive oil or sprinkle it with grated Parmesan cheese.
