Pioneer Woman Focaccia Ingredients Explained

Extra-virgin olive oil is what makes focaccia taste so delicious. It adds to the texture as well as the
flavor of the bread. The secret to having the best Pioneer Woman
focaccia bread is using a good quality of olive oil. You don’t have to spend your money, just use olive oil you love the flavor of.
Fresh garlic is essential for perfect garlic focaccia. I use two cloves, but for a really garlicky bread, you
can increase that. Fresh herbs are also excellent. Use what you love and have available to you. I love thyme focaccia, so I always use fresh thyme. In the photos below, I’ve also added some fresh olives. If you don’t have access to fresh herbs, we have shared dried substitutes in the recipe below.

Yeast, warm water, and sugar help the bread rise and give it structure. The warmth of the water and
the sugars wake up the yeast.

Salt makes the bread taste amazing. Just like when we season soups and sauces, it’s important to
season bread dough.

focaccia bread is one of my favorite yeast pieces of bread to prepare at home. It’s perfect for beginner bread bakers.

Pioneer Woman Focaccia Variations?

One of the best things about this Pioneer Woman focaccia bread recipe is that it’s totally versatile. I like to infuse olive oil with herbs. If you prefer, you can add some olives, red onions, and use ring peppers, it will still be so delicious. Or add even more flavor to the dough before baking with sliced olives, halved cherry tomatoes, or sun-dried tomatoes. Adding some cheese over the bread would also be amazing!

cheese, pepperoni, or tomatoes and bake until bubbly.
