Greatest Focaccia bread

I promised I would do a post about a bread I love to make. It’s a focaccia bread that’s perfect for salads, pastas, barbecue etc. 

I adore it and people around me adore it too, it’s always a huge hit.

So here is the recipe:


  • Yeast for bread about 15-20 g
  • Water 0,25 l (fingerwarm)
  • Flour, about 360 g
  • Oliveoil
  • Salt
  • Seasalt
  • Thyme
  • Garlic


  1. Crumble the yeast and add the fingerwarm water (about 37 degrees celsius). Mix until completely dissolved.
  2. Put 1 tablespoon of oliveoil and 1 teaspoon of salt into the mixture. Use a woodenspoon to mix, if possible.
  3. Add the flour and mix it all togheter.
  4. Kneed the bread for about 5-10 minutes or until you really worked that gluten.
  5. Put it under a towel and let it rise for 1 hour.
  6. Put a greaseproof paper into a oven tray.
  7. Drop the dough onto the paper and flatten it out, it should be about 1-2 cm high and about 20×15 cm. (Roughly, you will see how it is supposed to be.)
  8. Add 3 tablespoons of oliveoil and spread it out over the dough, use 1 teaspoon of Sea Salt on the mixture.
  9. Add the thyme and some garlic (honestly, you can use whatever you want as topping. This is just what I do)
  10. Put the towel over it and let it rise for another 30 minutes.
  11. Set the oven to 250 degrees celsius.
  12. When it’s reached 250 degrees, put the bread in for 12 minutes.
  13. Take the bread out and let it cool for a few minutes before you cut it up.

Serve and enjoy!

Love, Sara
