Introduction: How to Make a Focaccia

Focaccia is an Italian bread, made with wheat flour, yeast, water, salt and a little bit of sugar. Sometimes it is topped with herbs to give some flavour.

Step 1: First Step

Measure the amount of each ingredient

• Wheat flour: 500 g
• Yeast: 15 g
• Salt: 1 teaspoon
• Water: 250 ml
• Sugar: 1 pinch

Step 2: Second Step

You place the wheat flour on the surface where the dough is going to be done, then with a spatula you make a hole in the middle of the wheat flour to add there the yeast. 

Step 3: Third Step

You spread the salt all over the wheat flour and then in the hole you have done you place the yeast, the water and a pinch of sugar. 

Step 4: Fourth Step

With a little stick, you mix the water, the yeast, the sugar and some flour to activate the yeast. Then, you let it rest for ten minutes. 

Step 5: Fifth Step

After the yeast has been activated, you mix the remaining flour with what you have left rest. Then, you knead the mix you have made. 

Step 6: Sixth Step

You let the dough rest for two hours for it to rise. 

Step 7: Seventh Step

With a roller, you flatten the dough to give it a circular form. And with a stick, you make little holes to let the dough breath. 

Step 8: Eighth Step

You place the dough in a tray and you put it in the oven for 20 minutes. 

Step 9: Ninth Step

After the 20 minutes, you take out the Focaccia from the oven and it is ready to eat.
