Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, salt, sugar, yeast, garlic powder, oregano, thyme, basil and black pepper. Mix in the vegetable oil and water.
  2. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead until smooth and elastic. 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 for 20 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Punch dough down; place on greased baking sheet. Pat into a 1/2 inch thick rectangle. Brush top with olive oil. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and mozzarella cheese.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve warm.

We do love focaccia bread but usually get it from the store! However, with this recipe, (&, I'll admit, a couple of others I've tried), I'm now prepared to have it homemade! This bread of yours is most satisfying & I really enjoyed making it, even though just the 2 of us managed to devour most of it in one sitting ~ We really do need to pace ourselves with things like this! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this fall's round of Pick A Chef]
