This is by far one of the easiest recipes if you’re a beginner when it comes to making bread and want to start. No kneading is necessary and it’s extremely low effort, just throw all the ingredients in a bowl and leave it to work its magic! You’ll also notice that this recipe doesn’t yield as wet of a dough you’d usually see with focaccia—but that makes it even easier for beginners.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp instant yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup warm water
  • olive oil
  • extra flaky salt, rosemary, or basically any topping you’d like


  1. In a bowl, combine flour, yeast, salt, and water and stir until everything is well incorporated.
  2. Cover and let rise in the fridge overnight (at least 12-18 hours).
  3. Oil a baking dish well and transfer dough (which should have doubled in size), spreading gently to edges.
  4. Cover and let rise at room temperature for an additional 2-4 hours. The dough should now be plump and jiggly.
  5. Preheat oven to 210 degrees Celcius.
  6. Spread olive oil liberally over the top of your dough, and dimple gently with your fingertips. Sprinkle with rosemary and flaky salt.
  7. Bake for 25 minutes, or until top is golden brown.
  8. You’re done!

  1. This was so good. I found the recipe on TikTok and finally made it this weekend. It was a hit and is already gone. I think my pan was larger then yours so it wasn’t as thick but still delicious next time I’ll either increase the recipe or by a smaller pan to bake it in. I can’t wait to test other toppings and olive oils and see how that changes the flavor.


    1. I’m so glad it worked out well for you! I’m also really excited to experiment with different toppings or even do some focaccia art


    2. When I made mine I put a Italian herb mix, with smoked paprika and maldon salt. I made sandwiches with it and put red onions cooked in balsamic vinegar/sugar, then sardines, salt, black pepper, lemon juice and tomatoes. I also used homemade toum as a spread instead of butter.


  2. I made this the other day and it was super delicious, my roommate, bf and myself ate it all in one go and made some awesome sandwiches with it. The mixture was a little dry and I added a little more water and I also cooked a little longer cos my oven isn’t the best but it turned out super well. Thank you so much for it recipe cos it is amazing.


  3. This is the hest focaccia recipe I have ever come across. The other ones are either too conplicated or just taste bad. I can literally make the dough in under 15 minutes! Believe me when I say that this recipe is a godsend😌
