Bring the taste of Italy into your kitchen with this bread. This recipe uses a mixer but works just as well by mixing by hand. Check out our classic video below to see how its done. Make this recipe your own by using green olives or a combination of green and black olives. Use an olive oil within the bake to suit your tastes, use a mild oil if you are planning to serve with a dipping oil. If you really want to pack in the flavour, consider using sliced garlic or cherry tomatoes for the topping.

Method

  1. Place the ingredients for the focaccia in a mixer with a dough hook attached.

  2. Mix to a smooth dough, knead for 5 minutes. If mixing by hand knead for a further 5 minutes.

  3. Roll out to a circle 30cm (12in). Place onto a greased pizza tin and sprinkle on the sea salt.

  4. Leave to rise in a warm place for 45 minutes or until doubled in size.

  5. Preheat the oven to 220°C (fan 200°C, gas mark 7)

  6. Bake for 30 minutes until the bread is golden brown. To serve sprinkle with chopped olives and sea salt. Drizzle in olive oil.

    Very disappointing, it did not have the oily texture of most focaccia. Should some of the water be replaced with olive oil?
