Homemade Focaccia


I have seen Focaccia in many bakeries before but was never really attracted to it before as it always look rather stale and doughy. Finally, I had the chance o try to make my very own. It was crusty on the outside, soft on the inside, the tomatoes and flavours were simply awesome! I am so happy that i tried this, this is going to be a frequent dish at home now as it is so delicious and also versatile. You can adjust the toppings to your liking and design your own flavours, just like a pizza!


  1. 250g bread flour
  2. 162ml water
  3. 1/2 tsp salt
  4. 1 1/8 tsp instant yeast
  5. Small amount of olive oil


  1. Cherry tomatoes, halved
  2. Rosemary
  3. Salt


  1. Place the ingredients into your bread machine. Select pizza dough function. This setting should take about 45mins.
  2. Place the dough on a lightly floured surface, and roll into a flat rectangle.
  3. Lightly brush a baking dish with oil and put the dough in it.
  4. Add a couple tablespoons of oil onto the dough and spread it all over with your hands.
  5. Using your fingertips or knuckles, make many little wells/holes all over the dough.
  6. Add your favourite toppings. Cover with a damp towel and let it rise for about an hour until double in size.
  7. Bake in a preheated oven at 200deg for about 25-30minutes until golden.
  8. Brush another layer of olive oil once removed from the oven.

Best served with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar + olive oil glaze. Ben hates vinegar so i replaced it with a soy sauce + olive oil one 🙂
