Ingredients for Homemade Focaccia Bread
To make homemade focaccia bread you’ll need:
- All purpose flour
- Olive oil
- Sliced red onion
- Fresh rosemary
- Flaky sea salt
How to Make Homemade Focaccia Bread
Making homemade focaccia is SO easy!
- Add some cornmeal to the dough. Adding cornmeal creates a delicious texture unique to focaccia!
- Expect the dough to be wet. Focaccia dough is moist, so work quickly with oiled hands so the dough doesn’t stick.
- Grease the pan very well with olive oil. This will help ensure the bread doesn’t stick to the pan, and it adds delicious flavour!
- Shape with your hands. Instead of adding more flour when shaping the dough, oil it well with olive oil.
- Add your favourite toppings. Slice some onions thinly and add some fresh chopped rosemary, along with some flaky sea salt.
- Don’t forget the olive oil! Drizzle some olive oil over the top of the loaf as it cools for flavour and shine!

- 1/2 red onion thinly sliced
- 2 tablespoons fresh chopped rosemary (use dried rosemary, if you wish)
- 3 to 5 tablespoons olive oil
- flaky sea salt (optional)
- Measure the water into a liquid measuring cup and add the yeast and sugar, stirring gently to mix.
- Add the flour, cornmeal, and salt to a large bowl and whisk to combine.
- Add the olive oil to the flour mixture, and pour in the water mixture too.
- Stir the dough together with a wooden spoon until a sticky dough forms.
- Sprinkle a little flour on your clean work surface and turn the dough out onto it.
- Knead the dough gently for about 10-12 turns and form the dough into a ball.
- Grease the bowl with olive oil and put the dough back into the bowl, covering it with a clean kitchen towel.
- Let the dough rise for about 1 hour until it's double in size.
- Grease a small baking sheet generously with olive oil (approximately 14-inch by 10-inch is the best size for this recipe). Set aside.
- After the dough has risen, turn it out onto a well oiled work surface and oil your hands well too.
- Form the dough into a large rectangle the size of your baking sheet (you can even form the dough on the baking sheet, pushing it out to the edges of the baking sheet with your fingertips).
- Use your fingertips to make dents in the top of the dough, pushing your fingers down almost all the way through the dough.
- Cover the dough with a clean kitchen towel and let it rise for about 15-20 minutes while you preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Once the dough has risen scatter the thinly sliced onions on top, along with the chopped rosemary and the flaky sea salt. Drizzle a little olive over the bread before baking.
- Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit (bake at 375 degrees if your oven runs hot) for about 20 minutes, or until the top of the bread is golden brown.
- Remove from the oven and let cool almost to room temperature before slicing and serving with a drizzle of olive oil on top.
