Froth the yeast mixture.


Add the sugar and yeast to warm water and mix, then allow it to froth.

Mix everything with a stand mixer.


Add the flour, salt, and olive oil, then the frothy yeast mixture and mix on low. Once the dough is no longer sticking to the sides of the bowl, dump it onto a lightly floured surface and knead into a ball.

Let the focaccia dough rise.


Place the ball of dough in a large, oiled bowl and toss to coat the dough. Then, put plastic wrap over the top and let it sit in a warm place for an hour, or until it doubles in size.

Spread and press the dough.


Splash some oil on a baking sheet and place the dough on it. Using your fingertips, press the focaccia dough until it reaches the edges of the pan, then generously dot the dough with your fingers.

Add rosemary, proof, and bake.


Add oil on top and then sprinkle dried rosemary. Let the dough sit for 30 minutes to 1 hour until it rises. Then, bake it for 10-15 minutes at 470ºF until golden brown.
