  • Now add Sugar + Salt and whisk it well. Open your Instant Yeast packet and add it to the water. Mix again.
  • Add Bread Flour + Olive Oil and mix all of it together with a wooden spatula. Keep Mixing till everything is mixed and comes together as Sticky dough. Take some olive oil in your hand and gather the dough inside the pot. Leave it inside the inner pot.
  • Rising/Proofing the Dough - Place the inner pot in IP. Set it for 2 hrs on NORMAL YOGURT MODE. Cover the inner pot with a kitchen towel on the top and then place a heavy plate or a lid on the top. You will find the dough has proofed and doubled after 2 hrs.

  • Now Preheat the oven at 450*F and then reduce the oven temperature to 400*F.
  • Take the square baking pan & and grease it lightly.
  • Take out the dough in the baking pan. The dough might be slightly loose to handle. Oil your hands lightly and gently spread it out evenly in the pan. Poke dimples on the focaccia. Spray a little oil on the focaccia. Sprinkle the rosemary leaves and crystal grainy salt on top.
  • Put the Baking Pan inside the Oven and bake for 25-30 minutes till the top turns golden.
  • Take it out of the oven. Let focaccia rest in the pan for 10 minutes. Take it out and cool on the cooling rack for about 20-30 minutes. Then slice it. If you will slice it too early, the crumb of the bread would be destroyed.



  1. The temperature of water is important. It should be between 105-110*F to work with yeast.
  2. You  can add any herb of your choice to the dough.
  3. If you do not have Instant Pot to proof the bread, you can easily proof the dough without it. Take a steel or glass container and make dough in it. Cover with a damp cloth/kitchen towel and place a lid. Place it in the warm spot of your kitchen. Closed oven is the best bet. Wait for 2-3 hrs till it doubles up. And then follow the instructions as mentioned above.
