I have been making this for years. It was originally a bread machine recipe, but I just use my mixer, or by hand and it turns out fine.

It is a good flat bread you can add herbs, sun dried tomatoes, savory seasoning anything and it would be excellent. I love a dough that is so versatile. My favorite is to spread a little olive oil on top then sprinkle with garlic powder and some dried parsley. So yummy.

I also use it as my pizza dough it makes a great chewy crust that is crispy on the bottom…..just perfect for pizza.


1 1/4 cup warm water
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
3 1/3 cups flour*
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon yeast

Mix well then knead until smooth. Let rise until doubled in size. If making foccacia then form into a disk and put on a baking stone, a cookie sheet will work good too, but the bottom gets crispy with the stone. Bake for about 30 min until it turns golden. Enjoy.

* you may need less or more flour depends on the day.

    This looks really good and easy to make. Even for those of us that don't like to cook.

    I will have to try this! I have an OK recipe for pizza dough but I don't *love* it. I've been on the lookout for a new one for awhile.
