Jus-Rol Focaccia Bread

I’m a big fan of Jus-Rol, mainly because I am lazy and an easy option is always a good option to me!

I’ve used the puff pastry and shortcrust pastry to make pies, salmon en croute and many other things and it is just great!

So when I saw their new range to make pain au chocolates and croissants I got rather excited. But what really caught my eye was the focaccia bread! Bread..made easy…yes please!

I’ve never made bread, but always say I want to…I just put it off for another day…when I have more time, you know the excuses, I’m sure you use them too! The closest I’ve gotten to making real bread is watching The Great British Bake off religiously and developing a new found love for Paul Hollywood. Anyway, I digress…this Jus-Rol Focaccia bread looked right up my street, so I shoved a pack in the trolley and experimented when I got home:


The instructions are pretty simple, any old idiot can do it!

You just open the packaging, roll out the dough, pop some thumbprints strategically across your canvas (the dough) and sprinkle over the basil and rosemary infused olive oil.

Pop it in a preheated oven at 200 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until it is nice and golden et voila!! It’s ready to be devoured!


I wish making bread from scratch was that simple, but sadly I think it’s not, hence why I have put off making it (I’m very impatient you see, and proving the dough and waiting hours for it to rise, means I may lose interest half way and not see the whole process through)

It may not be a true authentic Italian focaccia, or the best focaccia you’ve ever tasted, but for very little effort and very little time…you’ve got a bloody good focaccia! It’s still light and airy, alright the air bubbles aren’t as big as a dough that you’ve worked and prepared yourself (or seen Paul Hollywood or the Greedy Italians do) but this bread tasted mighty fine!

I added a sprinkling of sea salt to mine and stuffed my face! YUM!
