Focaccia (foh-KAH-chee-ah) is an Italian yeast bread usually topped with onions, herbs, olive oil, or cheese. Our easy version is made with a hot roll mix. Serve it with pasta or enjoy a slice as a midafternoon snack.


  • Nonstick spray coating
  • 1 16 - ounce package hot roll mix
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2/3 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil


  1. Spray a 15x10x1-inch baking pan or a 12- to 14-inch pizza pan with nonstick coating or line with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. Prepare the hot roll mix according to package directions for the basic dough, using the 1 egg and substituting the 2 tablespoons olive oil for the margarine. Knead dough; allow to rest as directed. If using the large baking pan, roll dough into a 15x10-inch rectangle and carefully transfer to prepared pan. If using the pizza pan, roll dough into a 12-inch circle and carefully transfer to prepared pan.
  3. In a skillet cook onion and rosemary in the 2 teaspoons hot olive oil until tender. With fingertips, press indentations every inch or so in dough. Top dough evenly with onion mixture. Cover and let rise in a warm place until nearly double (about 30 minutes).
  4. Bake in a 375 degrees F oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden. Cool 10 minutes on a wire rack. Remove focaccia from pan; cool completely. Makes 24 servings.


  • Parmesan and Pine Nut Focaccia: Prepare focaccia as above, except omit the onion, rosemary, and 2 teaspoons olive oil. Make the indentations, then brush the dough with mixture of 1 egg white and 2 tablespoon water. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup pine nuts, pressing lightly into dough. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons fresh grated Parmesan cheese. Bake as directed.
