Have you tried to make bread before and it wasn’t what you hoped? I get it. The entire process can be intimidating. Throw a bread machine into the mix and things can go downhill fast.

This easy bread machine focaccia is a cinch to mix and knead. Let the machine do it. The shaping process is similar to pizza. It’s a great recipe for beginning bread-bakers.

The recipe for this easy focaccia starts with my Favorite Pizza Dough Recipe. However, the dough thickness and the toppings make focaccia different from pizza. When you make it, you get to decide how thick and bready or thin and crispy your focaccia will be.

Another distinction between pizza and focaccia is that pizza only has one rise–before you shape the dough, top it, and bake it. With focaccia, you shape the dough after the first rise, then let it rise again before adding the toppings and baking.

If you’re a whole grain person, use this Whole Wheat Pizza Dough Recipe for the base and add the rosemary and Parmesan toppings.

Don’t feel left out if you don’t have a bread machine. This flavorful focaccia can be made by hand or with a stand mixer. See the recipe notes for details.
