Quick Focaccia Bread #TwelveLoaves

Quick Focaccia Bread

This month we have the great inspiration of the Italian bread, the best of the best in this cuisine.
I love a good focaccia bread, but sometimes I don’t have the time to make it with yeast, so I try and experiment with different recipes and methods and found the perfect compromise to this delicious bread.
So easy and fast you will love the crunchiness and the flavor, a mixture of basil oil with oregano and parmesan cheese.
Perfect for a side in salads or pasta, and of course just for the pleasure of eating perfectly delicious Italian bread.


  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon basil oil or olive oil and more for the baking sheet
  • 1 teaspoon dry oregano
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup water


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. In a bowl add, water, flour, baking powder, salt, oregano and garlic powder, mix until everything is incorporated, then turn the dough onto a floured surface and knead for about 3 minutes. Form a ball and place it in a previously grease baking sheet, pour a little oil in the surface of the dough and spread into a rectangular shape.
  3. Sprinkle the parmesan cheese and bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
