I believe I found what could be the best Rosemary & Thyme Focaccia Bread Recipe! I love a really good restaurant style Focaccia bread. So in my quest to find one I surfed the web, looked at several recipes and decided to use this one from Inspired Taste, and it turned out awesome! Oh, and if you froze some fresh rosemary last fall like I did, it works perfectly in this recipe too.
Bake in a preheated 450 degrees F oven for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown on top.
We had this tasty Focaccia bread the other night with some spaghetti w/sweet Italian sausage. They go perfectly together!

Rosemary & Thyme Focaccia Bread Recipe
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 2 garlic gloves, minced
- 1 tablespoon fresh or frozen rosemary, chopped (or 1 teaspoon dried)
- 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped (or 1 teaspoon dried)
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 cup warm water
- 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast (1 packet)
- 1/4 teaspoon honey
- 2 1/2 cups unbleached or all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- In a medium saucepan combine the olive oil, minced garlic, rosemary, thyme and black pepper. Warm the oil slowly over low heat for about 5-10 minutes, or until the olive oil becomes aromatic. Set aside.
- In a large bowl combine the warm water, yeast, and honey. Stir and set aside for 5 minutes.
- Add the first cup of flour and 1/4 cup of the garlic & herb infused oil to the yeast mixture. Stir a few times until the flour is absorbed and allow to sit for an additional 5 minutes.
- In a separate bowl, combine the last 1 1/2 cups flour with the salt and add it to the mixture. Stir or mix using a dough hook until smooth for about a minute, or knead 10 - 15 times on a floured surface.
- Cover with a warm damp cloth, or if you have a Cambro container, take the lid (with a small hole on top) and snap it on to the mixing bowl. Allow dough to rise for an hour then remove the lid or damp cloth.
Heat oven to 450 degrees F.
- Pour 2 tablespoons of the herb-infused oil into an 11" round stone pan, or a 9" x 13" pan, spreading it evenly around the bottom and sides.
- Transfer dough to prepared pan spread the dough out evenly and dimple with fingertips. Then spread the last 2 tablespoons of the herb-infused oil over the top of the dough.
- Allow the dough to rise 20 minutes. Bake in a preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown on top. Cool about 5 minutes in pan, then transfer to a cooling rack.
