Do you make your own bread? I do, but not the kind you are probably thinking. I love all kinds of homemade bread, but I’m not a big planner and bread takes time and planning ahead. So lately I’ve been making the easiest focaccia bread based on the Weight Watchers recipe for two-ingredient pizza dough.
What makes it focaccia bread?
Well, when I think of focaccia, I think of a scraggly piece of bread that’s not too thick (although I guess it can be) and it has holes or indentations all over the top that holds the olive oil. To me, it’s the holes that make it focaccia over say just pizza dough.
What are the best toppings?
Toppings are basically anything you have on hand!
Anything that you have on hand. That’s the beauty of focaccia bread. It’s very forgiving. I like cherry tomatoes, olives, onion, and fresh herbs. You could even top it with small roasted potatoes if it’s going to be more of a meal.
Does focaccia bread have yeast?
Yes and no. This recipe is the more traditional recipe for focaccia bread. I used to make it all the time until I discovered the simple Weight Watchers recipe. I still make this pizza dough quite often, so making the focaccia bread seemed like a good idea. It’s so easy and you could make it with as few as three ingredients. I think that’s pretty cool. Something so simple, but so delicious!
So what are the three ingredients that you need to make this super easy recipe that will save you from a boring weeknight meal?
- Greek Yogurt
- Self Rising Flour or you can make your own!
- Olive Oil
Do I need to buy self-rising flour?
No, I have never bought self-rising flour. You can make your own. For every cup of flour, add 1/2 teaspoon baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt. That’s it! I have white, wheat, almond, and coconut flour currently in my pantry. I think I have a box of cake flour for making Madeleine’s too! I’m not looking to add one more kind of flour when I can make it so easily.Print

- one cup self-rising flour OR 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, and 1/4 teaspoon salt.

- Combine the flour and yogurt and stir to combine.

- Place it in the bottom of an oiled pan or skillet
- Press it out evenly and make indentations into the dough with your finger making sure you don’t go all the way through.
- Drizzle olive oil over the top (and any toppings) and bake in a 425º oven for about 20 minutes or until it starts to brown a little.

So good and so easy! I like making it in a cast-iron skillet, but any pan will work. The cast-iron browns the bottom to perfection.
