Homemade Focaccia Bread Pizza

What’s not to like about a pizza starring homemade pizza dough? I’m taking the Do It Yourself deliciousness one action further by kicking the crispy crust to the curb in favor of the supreme homemade focaccia bread.

The star of the show here really is the base of this easy, cheesy pizza. The fuss-free focaccia comes together in minutes and offers the ideal blank canvas for all of your preferred pizza garnishes.

The thicker focaccia crust can manage an entire lot-o-toppings. So either keep it simple with homemade marinara sauce and tons of fresh mozzarella or pile on the pepperoni, fresh veggies and extra cheese.

Yield: 8 servings

  • 1 1/2
    warm water
  • 3
    olive oil (plus additional for greasing pan)
  • 1 1/4
  • 3 1/2
    all-purpose flour
  • 1
    instant (quick rise) yeast
  • 3/4
    store-bought or homemade marinara sauce
  • 1 1/2

  • Various pizza toppings, such as pepperoni, mushrooms and olives

Grease a 13 x9-inch metal baking pan with 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle accessory, integrate the warm water, 3 tablespoons olive oil, salt, flour and yeast. Beat on medium speed for 1 minute simply until combined.

Scoop the batter (it will be really sticky) into the prepared pan. Cover the pan with plastic wrap and let it rest at space temperature for 1 hour till it has actually puffed.

Bake the focaccia for 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown then eliminate it from the oven and enable it to cool for 5 minutes still in the pan.

Transfer the focaccia bread from the pan onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
