How to Make Garden Focaccia

Jenna Inaba, our Uniform Designer, shows us how to make gourmet-quality, garden focaccia bread. Roll up your sleeves and let's get baking!

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 ½ teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons instant yeast
  • 2 cups lukewarm water
  • 2 ½ tablespoons olive oil for greasing
  • Seasonal vegetables

Step 1
Make the dough: Mix flour, yeast, and 2 teaspoons of kosher salt. Add the water. Using a spatula, mix ingredients until they form a sticky dough. Rub the surface of the dough with ½ tablespoon of olive oil. Cover the dough with plastic wrap and leave it in the fridge overnight to proof for 12-18 hours.

Step 2
Drizzle ½ tablespoon of olive oil and massage the dough. Fold the dough about seven times to make sure the oil is mixed. Pour a tablespoon of olive oil to grease the 9 x 13 pan. Then transfer your dough to the pan and let rest for an hour for the second proof.

Step 3
Cut and prep seasonal vegetables while the dough is resting.

Step 4
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Drizzle a tablespoon of olive oil and massage dough. Using your fingers, press down to make dimples. Sprinkle ½ teaspoon of kosher salt and add your seasonal vegetables.

Step 5
Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and transfer focaccia to a cooling rack. Cool for 15 minutes before cutting.
