I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Olive Foccacia Bread
...in your mind.

Olive Foccacia Bread

Makes 10 - 12 pieces - Yes - it starts out as pre-made pizza dough but it is so good.

  • Flour
  • Olive oil
  • 1/2 cup pitted Kalamata olives, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary or 1 Tablespoon fresh rosemary leaves, chopped
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, shredded
  • Pinch of Kosher salt


  1. Preheat oven to 400
  2. Flour your board and shape the dough into about a 1/2 inch rectangle (irregular is great - it doesn’t have to be perfect)
  3. Place the parchment paper over a baking sheet and put the dough onto the parchment
  4. Drizzle the dough liberally with olive oil
  5. Scatter the olives over the top and sprinkle -first with the rosemary, then with the parmesan cheese and finally the pinch of salt
  6. Bake for about 20 minutes until the dough is cooked through but not too browned
