  • 1 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) sugar
  • 3/4 cup(s) warm water
  • 1 cup(s) whole whear flour

  9. 7. Using tongs, flip the crusts to the cooler side of the grill, brush with olive oil, sprinkle with some of the herbs and close the lid of the grill. Cook, rotating once or twice, until hot and crisp. Repeat with the remaining dough, olive oil and herbs. Cut each focaccia in half to serve.
