The best beginner bread recipe!
Easily make your own cheesy red pepper focaccia bread at home. The perfect recipe for a beginner. Simple ingredients and no kneading.
Grease the bottom and sides of a sheet pan with 2 TB olive oil, then coat one side of cling wrap cut to measure about the size of your sheet pan.
In a large bowl, place the flour, yeast, salt, 1/4 c. Parmesan, 1 TB of the crushed red pepper, the water and 3 TB olive oil. Using either a stand mixer fitted with the hook attachment or a hand mixer, beat the ingredients until it forms a sticky dough. (Can also use just your arms and a wooden spoon – been there!)
Remove the dough and set it on the prepared sheet pan and cover it with the oiled side of the cling wrap – don’t worry about shaping it yet – then place a dish towel on top. Let sit at room temperature for an hour to rise.
