Let’s Get Started


  • In a large bowl, stir together the flour, salt, sugar, yeast, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning.
  • Next, mix in the vegetable oil and water.
  • When the dough comes together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead until smooth and elastic.
  • Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl, and turn to coat with oil. Cover with a damp cloth, and let rise in a warm place for 20 minutes. Preheat oven to 425⁰F.
  • Punch dough down; place on a greased baking sheet and pat into a 1/2″ thick rectangle. Press your fingers into the dough to keep dimples from forming.
  • Brush the dough with melted butter.
  • Arrange the vegetables and herbs on the dough to create a fun picture. Lightly press the vegetables into the dough.
  • Sprinkle sea salt and pepper over the top. Sprinkle with Parmesan and Mozzarella cheese.
  • Bake for 15 minutes or until the focaccia is golden brown. Allow to cool for 30 minutes before serving.
