2. Once the dough has proofed, you may either book fold it or simply shape it the way I have. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes.

3. Focaccia is ready! The olives as topping give it a nice tangy flavor. You may add more if you want. Place on a wire rack to cool and brush some butter over it while it is still hot.
