Focaccia with Rosemary and Sage


Get creative with Rosemary and Sage and put this delicious, easy Italian bread on the table in no time!

What do you need:

  • 550 grams of flour

  • 345 grams of water

  • 3 tsp table salt

  • 1.5 teaspoons coarse sea salt

  • 1.5 teaspoons of honey

  • 1 bag of yeast (7 grams)

  • 50 grams of olive oil

  • 3 cloves of garlic

  • 10 grams of Rosemary

  • 10 grams of sage


  1. Set aside 1 sprig of Rosemary. Finely chop the sage, garlic and remaining rosemary. Heat the pan with olive oil and fry the finely chopped herbs and garlic. As soon as the pan starts to smell, turn it off and let it cool. Please note that the herbs and garlic must not turn too brown.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, water and yeast. Stir this (with a spatula). Then add 3 tsp kitchen salt and use the food processor with a dough hook. If you don't have a food processor, knead the dough thoroughly by hand for about 3 minutes. Once the dough has come together, add the herbs, garlic and honey. Let the dough turn for a few minutes until you have a smooth dough. Please note: the dough remains sticky.

  3. Grease a large bowl, form the dough into a ball and place it in the bowl. Cover with a clean tea towel and place in a warm place to rise for at least an hour. Tip: you can also make the dough the night before. Then place the dough in the refrigerator for 20 to 24 hours to rise slowly.

  4. After waiting an hour, preheat the oven to 225°. Place baking paper on the baking tray and pour the dough onto it. Pull and push the dough into a rectangular shape. Cover again with the tea towel and let rise for another 10 minutes.

  5. Brush the focaccia with the remaining olive oil and poke holes in the dough with your fingers. The holes may fill with oil, which gives a rich taste and structure. Take the rosemary sprig and unzip the leaves. Sprinkle the bread with the Rosemary and coarse sea salt.

  6. Bake for 25 minutes until golden brown and done. The bread is done when you tap it and you hear a hollow sound.

Let the bread cool and enjoy! Delicious with homemade herb butter or a tasty pesto.
