Rosemary Focaccia

Oxmoor House JANUARY 2004

  • Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 1 square)
  • Cook time: 20 Minutes
  • Prep time: 13 Minutes
  • Rise: 30 Minutes


  • 1 package dry yeast (about 2 1/4 teaspoons)
  • 3/4 cup warm water (100° to 110°)
  • 2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried rosemary, crushed and divided
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • Olive oil-flavored cooking spray


Dissolve yeast in warm water in a large bowl; let stand 5 minutes.

Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Stir 2 cups flour, 1 1/2 tablespoons oil, 1 teaspoon rosemary, and 1/2 teaspoon salt into yeast mixture, stirring just until moist. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead until smooth and elastic (about 8 minutes); add enough of remaining flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, to prevent dough from sticking to hands.

Place dough in a large bowl coated with cooking spray. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 30 minutes or until doubled in size. (Press two fingers into dough. If indentation remains, the dough has risen enough.)

Preheat oven to 400°.

Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. Punch dough down; transfer to prepared baking sheet. Gently press dough into an 11 x 7-inch rectangle about 1/2 inch thick. Using the handle of a wooden spoon or your fingertips, make indentations in dough. Drizzle remaining oil evenly over dough. Sprinkle with remaining rosemary and salt.

Bake at 400° for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Cut into 8 squares.
