This recipe is a beginner-friendly approach to ease your self into the world of selfmade bread, and it’s so good that I’d fortunately keep on the “focaccia part” of my bread baking journey ceaselessly. So, let’s dive into this simple no-knead focaccia since Thanksgiving is across the nook and I’ve a sense you’re going to need this in your desk.
Talking of Thanksgiving, I’ve received a Turkey Day ache level. As a agency believer in the concept we “eat with our eyes first,” I’m at all times a bit upset once I have a look at my plate and it’s a monochromatic glob of turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and the white roll doesn’t often assist issues, although it would style nice. With this recipe, I needed to reinvent the bread we often see on the Thanksgiving desk and produce in additional vibrant colours, textures, and flavors.
My easy no-knead focaccia is studded with rosemary, loads of garlic, everything spice, and California Ripe Olives, that are essentially the most scrumptious, juicy, and wealthy olives I’ve ever eaten, grown by a number of multi-generational household farms on the Central California Coast. You may search for the CA Grown license plate brand to ensure you’re getting the actual deal.
Even though this recipe is easy, it’s not a quick or shortcut version as it relies on two significant resting periods to allow the dough to rise and create those wonderful pockets of air focaccia is famous for. However, there’s no kneading or rolling required—the dough is so pliable that when it’s time, you simply use your hands to stretch and shape it to fit your baking sheet.

Once you’re happy with your topping design, pop the baking sheet in the oven, and 20 minutes later you’ll be rewarded by warm, garlicky focaccia that’s ready to be devoured.
