  1. Start by evenly spacing the Rhodes Bake-N-Serv frozen bread rolls across a silicone baking mat or lined baking tray. 
  2. Place in a warm place (I like to put mine in the oven with the light on for a little warmth). Allow the rolls to defrost and then rise for between three and five hours until the dough has roughly doubled in size.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare the toppings for your focaccia bread art.
  4. Use your fingertips to flatten the bread rolls, and then press dents into the surface.
  5. Scatter the cherry tomatoes, onion, herbs, garlic, and a pinch of salt and pepper across the surface of the bread dough, and then drizzle with a little extra virgin olive oil

8. Once risen, place the focaccia no knead rolls into the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until golden brown.
9. Remove the bread from the oven and set it aside to cool for 10 minutes before serving. Mmmmm warm bread

How to Serve

If you prefer warm bread, serve your focaccia soon after baking. Let the bread cool down for 5-10 minutes so you can handle it. Alternatively, allow it to cool completely and enjoy as a side to your favorite meal or even in place of regular bread for an extra tasty sandwich!

How to Store

You should eat your focaccia no knead bread soon after baking while it’s fresh and fluffy, or ideally within 24 hours of baking. If necessary, refresh your focaccia bread by placing pieces in the oven (350F/176C) for 5 to 10 minutes.

  1. I noticed the cherry tomatoes still had their green stem parts–are those green stem/caps actually edible? Or are they on the tomatoes just for the photo?
