    1. 1
      Grease a 10-15 inch jelly-roll pan generously with olive oil.
    2. 2
      Make the dough: stir the salt into the flour and rub in the lard or oil with your hands, making sure it is evenly absorbed by the flour.
    3. 3
      Whisk the yeast into the water and use a large rubber spatula to stir the yeast mixture into the flour mixture; stir vigorously to make an evenly moistened dough that is not necessarily very smooth.
    4. 4
      Cover the bowl with plastic wrap; let dough rise at room temperature until it is doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.
    5. 5
      Once the dough has risen, scrape it onto the prepared pan and spread it evenly with the palms of your hands; if the dough resists, set the pan aside for 5 minutes to let the dough relax a little, then continue.
    6. 6
      Cover dough with oiled plastic wrap and let the dough rise in the pan until it is puffy; about 30 minutes.
    7. 7
      About 15 minutes before you are ready to bake, set a rack in the lowest level of the oven; preheat oven to 425°.
    8. 8
      Use your index finger to dimple the dough at 1 ½ inch intervals; drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle with the salt.
    9. 9
      Bake the foccacia until it is deep golden in color, about 30 minutes.
    10. 10
      Before removing the focaccia from the oven, use a spatula to lift the focaccia to make sure the bottom is well-colored and done.
    11. 11
      Slide the focaccia from the pan onto a rack to cool.
    12. 12
      Cut the focaccia into 2- to 3-inch squares; best eaten on the day it is made.
