Easy Garlic Jalapeño Focaccia Bread

Few things before you get started:

  • Read all about baking with yeast here

  • It is crucial to give ample amount of rising time to get that soft pillow-y texture which is why we double proof in this recipe

  • The recipe is very versatile and you can switch up the flavors to your liking

  • Using wheat gluten is optional. I always recommend using it in my bread recipes, that way you don't have to knead the dough as much and you get a fluffier texture


2 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1 tsp salt

1 1/2 tsp wheat gluten

1/2 cup olive oil

6-8 garlic cloves (finely chopped or minced)

2 tsp oregano

1 tsp each of rosemary, thyme & hot pepper flakes

1 cup warm water

1/2 tsp sugar

2 1/2 tsp active dry yeast

1 small onion (thinly sliced)

1 small bell pepper (thinly sliced)

Jalapeños (to taste)

Olives (to taste)

Shredded Mozzarella Cheese (to taste)


  1. Start by proofing your yeast. Mix your milk, water and sugar. Heat in microwave till it reaches 110-115 F. Sprinkle the yeast and set aside. Read in detail about yeast here

  2. In a saucepan add olive oil, minced garlic, rosemary, thyme & hot pepper flakes. Heat on a medium flame till fragrant. Set aside to cool

  3. In a large bowl combine flour, salt and gluten. Mix well

  4. Make a well in the dry ingredients and add the herb oil and yeast mixture

  5. Knead for 10 minutes until the dough is springy

  6. Put the dough in an oiled bowl and set it aside to rise in a warm spot for about 1 hour or until double in volume

  7. Punch down the dough and flatten it in a 9X13 inch oiled pan

  8. Add your toppings - onions, bell peppers, cheese, jalapeños and olives

  9. Add a drizzle of olive oil and use your fingers to make indents in the dough to create little pockets of oil. This will create that signature focaccia texture ruling Instagram right now!

  10. Cover loosely with a plastic wrap and let it rest for another 45 minutes

  11. Pre-heat your oven to 230 C. Bake the bread for about 20-25 minutes or until you get a golden brown crust!
