Don’t feel left out if you don’t have a bread machine. This flavorful focaccia can be made by hand or with a stand mixer. See the recipe notes for details.
My Favorite Pizza Dough Recipe makes another appearance today disguised as Easy Rosemary-Parmesan Focaccia. This recipe is even easier than making pizza dough.
How to use a bread machine to make Focaccia:
Again, I recommend using a bread machine only to mix and knead the dough—bake in a conventional oven.
Trust me. This recipe isn’t complicated.
Have you tried to make bread before and it wasn’t what you hoped? I get it. The whole process can be intimidating. Throw a bread machine into the mix, and things can go downhill fast.
Let me encourage you to give it another try.
I’ll hold your hand. Get out your bread machine, and let’s get started. If you have a question or problem, shoot me an email.
How do I serve Focaccia?
Rosemary-Parmesan Focaccia is terrific with pasta. Use a pizza cutter to cut wedges like you would cut a pizza.
Also suitable for sandwiches. Split the focaccia in half horizontally. Toasting is optional.

Bread Machine Focaccia Recipe
- 1 cup water - warm
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 3 cups 360 grams unbleached all-purpose flour
- 2 ¼ teaspoons bread machine yeast
- Add ingredients to bread machine in order given. Run the dough cycle. Take bread out of machine and place on floured board. Divide in half and form into two smooth balls. Let rest approximately 10 minutes.
- Generously oil a deep dish pizza pan or heavy cookie sheet at least 13-inches across. Place the dough in a pan and flatten by using your hands to flatten the dough.
- Let the dough rise for 30-40 minutes. Use your finger tips to poke random holes in the surface of the dough.
- Drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil on top, then sprinkle 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary and freshly ground pepper. Sprinkle freshly grated Parmesan Cheese on top.
- Bake at 425 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
- To make this recipe in a heavy-duty stand mixer: Add ingredients to the bowl in the same order. Turn on LOW to mix until all ingredients are moistened. Then, using a dough hook, turn the speed to 2 or 3. Continue beating/kneading until dough becomes smooth and elastic (about 5-10 minutes). Cover and allow to rise in a warm place. Deflate dough gently and shape as indicated in the recipe.
- If making by hand: Combine all ingredients into a shaggy ball in a large bowl. Turn dough out onto a floured surface. Knead with your hands until the dough becomes smooth and elastic. This will likely take 10-20 minutes, depending on your experience. Place the dough ball into a greased bowl. Cover and allow to rise until double. Deflate the dough gently and shape as indicated in the recipe.
- Please note: You can substitute active dry yeast. Dissolving it first is optional. It tends to rise slower in the beginning but will catch up eventually.
