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