Waiting time 2h


For 4 Person(s)


  • 500 g all-purpose flour
  • 240 ml water
  • 7 g active dry yeast (see the notes)*
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 80 g olive oil + more for the crust

Super soft panfocaccia Directions

  1. In a large bowl mix flour with dry yeast and sugar. Add water and stir. As soon as the flour begins to form a dough, let it rest for about 5 minutes (the flour will absorb the water and it will be easier to knead later)

  2. At this point add oil and salt and knead the dough for at least 10 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic.

  3. Form a ball, transfer it to a slightly greased bowl, cover the bowl with some plastic wrap and let rise the dough for about 1 hour (or 2 hours if you have halved the yeast).

  4. After this period of time gently transfer the dough onto a baking tray covered with baking paper and without deflating it excessively, flatten the dough to give it the desired shape.

Recipe notes

In case you would like to keep your focaccia, pizza, brioche or bread more fresh, all you have to do is divide the yeast in half and extend the leavening time.
