For the HomemadeFocaccia

  • 2 ½ tsp. active dried yeast
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 5 cups all purpose or bread flour
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 6 tbsp. olive oil
  • 3 tbsp. butter room temperature

For the Italian Sandwiches

  • BUBBL’R tropical dream’r
  • 2 cups arugula
  • 4 oz. sliced mortadella
  • 4 oz. prosciutto
  • 4 oz. brie cheese thinly sliced
  • quartered marinated artichokes optional
  • grated parmesan cheese optional
  • fresh basil for garnishing


For the Homemade Focaccia

  • Combine the yeast and honey in a very large bowl with 2 ½ cups warm water. Let sit for5 minutes.
  • Add the flour and salt to the bowl. Mix until a shaggy dough and no dry lumps. Cover and let rise in a warm environment for 1 hours, doubled in size.
  • Add 4 tablespoons olive oil in the center of the risen dough. Gently lift and fold over the four “corners” of the bowl to incorporate the olive oil.
  • Cover the dough to rise in a warm environment for another 1 hour, doubled in size.
  • Generously grease a 9×13” baking pan with the butter to prevent any sticking.
  • Gently lift and fold the four “corners” again before transferring the dough into the pan. Pulling from underneath the dough, gently stretch to the corners. Let rise uncovered for 1-2 hours, until doubled in size.
  • Preheat oven to 450F.
  • Drizzle the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil over the dough. Grease your hands with olive oil then poke deep depressions in the dough to create those dimples.
  • Top with salt to taste and bake 20-30 minutes, until golden brown on top. Let cool 10 minutes before slicing.

For the Italian Sandwiches

  • Slice the focaccia in sandwich-sized squares, then slice each individual piece in half lengthwise.
  • Layer on the bottom slice the arugula, sliced mortadella, sliced brie, prosciutto, quartered marinated artichokes, freshly grated parmesan, and fresh basil. Add the top slice to seal.
  • Enjoy with BUBBL’R Tropical Dream’r for a complimentary refreshment!
