Make extra because this sourdough focaccia will be demolished quickly! Try dipping in olive oil with course salt and red pepper flakes or spread creamy butter on top. So delicious!

Focaccia is the perfect bread to start with.


  • It requires no dutch oven, only a 9 by 13 inch pan.
  • Fewer lifts and folds and no shaping.
  • No scoring needed.

Curious about sourdough?

You’ll need starter. You can make your own over the course of about a week or so. If you choose to do this, summer is the best time. Starter likes warmth. My recommendation is to purchase dehydrated starter on line. Check here if you want more details about bread making. I will also suggest a heat mat. This is a game changer is it literally regulates heat so your starter and dough can remain at optimal temperature. Check Bakehouse Essentials (discount at checkout with Lemon10).
