Cherry Tomato Focaccia

15 MIN
25 MIN
30 MIN
8 to 12 portions



  1. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 450°F (230°C).
  2. On a 17 x 12-inch (43 x 30-cm) baking sheet, pour ½ cup (125 ml) of the oil. Press the dough onto the whole surface of the sheet, turning it a few times to coat with oil. Make small cavities in the dough with your fingertips. Let rise for 30 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the tomatoes with the remaining oil.
  4. Spread the herbs and garlic on the risen dough. Cover with the tomatoes. Generously season with salt and pepper.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes or until the crust is golden brown. Let rest for 10 minutes to allow the dough to absorb the oil. Cut and serve.


If desired, add halved bocconcini cheese or slices of mozzarella di bufala 2 minutes before the end of cooking.

Good with...


  1. I made this recipe twice in the last 7 days so I must like it...Second time around I added my tweaks as although it was good the first time around it was lacking flavour a bit. My tweaks; reduced sugar to 6 teaspoonS ( health reason), added the Greek spice mix from Costco on the raised dough in addition of the fresh rosemary and thyme, used thinly sliced tomatoes that I coated with olive oil and the same mix spices. The result was convincing and delicious!

  2. Just made this and followed recipe exactly. It turned out delicious and I will make this again and again! 5 stars!

  3. Wonderful recipe loved by young and old

  4. This was a big hit at summer buffet. Easy to make and delicious!

  5. The sweetness of the tomatoes contrasted with the fleur de sel made this easy dish so yummy! Made an hour before guests arrived and served at room temperature. Cut into wedges (I made it round) while still hot.

  6. Is it possible to give make ahead instructions? eg. after dough is spread out, could be put in fridge? then allow to come to room temp & rise for _____mins., then proceed with recipe? that would be helpful Thank you
