You will love this focaccia bread made in an air fryer. It will also be a wonderful present for family members, neighbors, and friends. Give it a go! You’re going to adore it!


Dough for focaccia

  1. My preferred all-purpose flour for this recipe is King Arthur flour, 500 g.
  2. 400 g of room temperature water
  3. Three grams of instant yeast
  4. Nine grams of sea salt

Additional Ingredients and Toppings

  1. 2 tablespoons softened unsalted butter
  2. Six tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, plus more if necessary;
  3. two finely sliced or minced garlic cloves
  4. 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
  5. one cup of finely chopped herbs parsley, sage, dill, and basil


  • Water, flour, yeast, and salt should all be added to a big basin. Make sure the ingredients do not come into contact with one another before mixing. By hand, combine the dough by squeezing it between your fingers until a cohesive, sticky mass forms. Place a plastic wrap over the bowl and allow it to rest for 20 minutes.
  • Stretch and fold for twenty minutes, then for twenty more minutes, and then for twenty more minutes. Once the dough has been shaped into a ball, coat it with two tablespoons olive oil. For an additional twenty minutes, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and allow the dough to rest.
  • Scoop out three equal portions of dough and place them onto three 7.5″ x 5″ foil pans that have been oiled with two teaspoons of butter (See Notes). Each dough piece should be stretched to completely fill the pan’s bottom. Refrigerate for up to 24 hours or overnight after covering with plastic wrap.
  • Two hours before baking, take the dough out of the refrigerator and cover it to allow it to prove at room temperature.
  • Drizzle a generous amount of olive oil over the dough. Make deep indentations all over the dough’s surface using your fingertips. After distributing the toppings, pour a little olive oil over everything.
  • Bake for about 12 minutes at the highest temperature, which is typically 400F. Since each air fryer bakes bread differently, start checking early. Your bread might be done sooner, or the baking time might need to be extended by a few minutes. You don’t have to preheat your air fryer.
  • The focaccia should be carefully moved to a large cutting board, sliced, and served hot. It tastes best at this point. Have fun!


  • This recipe’s pan size (7.,5″ 5″) is meant for my air fryer, which has an inside measurement of 10″ by 10″. You might need to use different sized pans and split the dough into multiple portions, like 2, 4, etc., depending on the size of your air fryer.
