Nutrition: per serving



  • 500 g Plain Flour
  • 2 tsp Salt
  • 7 g Dried Yeast
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 300 ml Water warm
  • 4 cloves Garlic minced
  • 2 tbsp Rosemary chopped


  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the dried yeast with the warm water and let it sit for a few minutes until it becomes frothy.
  • Make a well in the flour mixture and pour in the yeast mixture and olive oil.
  • Stir until a dough forms, then knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for about 10 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic.
  • Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl, cover it with a clean kitchen towel, and let it proof in a warm place for about 1 hour or until it has doubled in size.
  • Preheat your oven to 220°C (200°C fan/ Gas Mark 7).
  • Punch down the risen dough, then roll it out to fit a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  • Use your fingers to create dimples in the dough.
  • Mix the minced garlic and chopped rosemary with a couple of tablespoons of olive oil, then drizzle this mixture evenly over the dough, making sure to get it into the dimples.
  • Sprinkle the top with sea salt flakes.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until the focaccia is golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom.
  • Drizzle with extra olive oil while still warm.
  • Allow it to cool slightly before slicing and serving.
