As we head into the fall season, you will want this easy 90 minute focaccia bread recipe. It’s so easy to make. You basically mix it together, get it in a pan. Then leave it alone for 60 minutes then bake.

Serve this 90 minute focaccia bread up as a side to your favorite pasta dish like the easy penne rosa recipe I shared on Tuesday. It is also a great side for soups and you can use it to make sandwiches. For this recipe, I top it with rosemary and salt, but you can totally change up the flavor by using different herbs. You can even try adding some shredded cheese, thinly sliced fresh garlic, or caramelized onions.

  • SALT

The dough is made by combining flour, olive oil, salt, instant yeast, and water. When using instant yeast, there is no need to place in water before using. You just add it straight into the recipe. It pretty much makes this bread foolproof. You can mix it by hand. However, I mix mine in my Kitchen Aid with the paddle attachment and it only takes a minute to mix up.

Now you are going to spread the dough out into a greased 9 x 13 baking pan. I use a silicone spatula to help get this done. Once you have the dough spread out, cover it with plastic wrap and give it one hour to rise.

Once that dough has risen, you can remove the plastic and you are going to make those finger-sized holes on top. I like to spray my finger with non-stick cooking spray before gently pressing my fingers all over the surface of the bread. Now it’s time to drizzle olive oil over the dough. Then sprinkle with rosemary and coarse salt. I have a salt grinder of pink Himalayan salt that I use.

Now just bake the bread at 375 degrees for about 28-30 minutes until golde brown. Let it cool for about 5 minutes then cut into squares. This bread is dense and moist. This will be one you will be making often over the fall and winter season.
