Fluffy Focaccia with olives and rosemary

This easy no-knead, fluffy focaccia bread recipe makes super airy focaccia bread. The outside is golden and crispy and the inside is airy and light.

It's similar to pizza dough, but in this dough is much more hydrated so it creates a really light and airy bread with the best texture.

In a large bowl combine yeast, water, flour, and salt and mix together to create a wet and well-combined, shaggy dough ball.

Leave it to sit for 15 minutes before applying 4 sets of stretch and folds spread out over an hour.

It's a very wet dough, so do not feel alarmed if it feels sloppy. It will come together as the stretch and folds continue.

By the last stretch and fold there will be a significant difference in texture and the dough should be able to stretch up quite high and feel strong.

Drizzle the pan with olive oil. Press in the dough and let it double until jiggly.  Use oiled fingers to create deep dimples on the top of the dough.

Top with fresh rosemary, olives and coarse salt.

Bake until puffed and golden.
