Floating Olive Branch
Thanksgiving Focaccia


1 each Seasons Italian Herb Focaccia Bread Mix or Focaccia Bread Dipping Set 

1 cup warm water 

4 tablespoons Family Reserve Picual Extra Virgin Olive Oil 

3 tablespoons Porcini & Sage Infused Olive Oil 

2 teaspoons Pepe e Aglio Seasoning Blend 

2 teaspoons Fleur de Sel 


Place focaccia mix and yeast packet (included in the bread mix) in a large bowl. Add water, one tablespoon of Family Reserve EVOO, and one tablespoon of Pocini & Sage EVOO to the bowl and stir until the dough comes together. Turn the dough out on a lightly floured surface and knead 8-10 times until the dough is smooth and elastic. Return the dough to the bowl, drizzle with one tablespoon of Family Reserve, turn to coat and cover. Set aside in a warm spot to rise for 1 hour. Preheat oven to 450°F. Coat the bottom and sides of a large oven-proof skillet or casserole dish with two tablespoons of oil (can be either or both). Transfer the dough to the skillet and, using your hands, spread the dough out to the edges. Dock the dough with your fingertips and drizzle with the remaining oil. Sprinkle the top of the focaccia dough with Pepe e Aglio and salt and place in the oven. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. Remove from the oven and set aside to rest for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
