This fantastic focaccia recipe will have Paul Hollywood reaching through your television screen to offer you up a handshake! 🤝 📺


500g White bread flour
2 teaspoon Salt
2 sachets Dried yeast
2 tablespoons Olive oil
400ml Water
Thyme to taste
Cherry tomatoes


Using a mixing bowl, combine the yeast, flour, salt, olive oil and 250ml of cold water until a dough consistency forms.

Knead the dough in the bowl and slowly add the remaining water.

Using your hands, stretch the dough and fold it in on itself. Turn the bowl and repeat about 8 times.

Drizzle olive oil on to a clean work surface and place the dough on top. Knead for five minutes then place the dough back in to the bowl and cover with a clean towel or clingfilm and leave to double in size.

Divide the risen dough then place on to two baking trays lined with baking paper, flatten the dough using the palm of your hand and leave for two hours.

Once the two hours have passed, heat the oven to 220C/200C Fan, place the tomatoes on to the dough (see picture) then drizzle the dough with oil and scatter the herbs and salt on top.

Place in the oven for 20 minutes.
