  1. 1

    Mix dough

    • In bowl of stand mixer, stir together warm water and yeast. Let stand until yeast has dissolved, about 10 minutes.
    • Add flour and 1 tablespoon kosher salt. Attach dough hook and beat on low speed for 10 minutes.

  2. 2

    Shape dough; let rise

    • Transfer dough to lightly floured work surface. Cup dough with both hands and lightly apply pressure while making circular motions with dough to form into a tight ball.
    • Transfer dough ball to lightly oiled bowl; cover with plastic wrap.
    • Let dough stand at room temperature until doubled in size, about 1½ hours.
    • Transfer dough to lightly floured work surface and punch down.
    • Shape dough into a tight ball as described above.
    • Return dough to oiled bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let stand at room temperature until doubled in size again, about 45 minutes.

  3. 3

    Shape focaccia

    • Transfer dough to lightly floured surface. Using knife, divide dough in half. Return one dough ball to bowl, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate while baking remaining dough.
    • Spread 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil on Brava metal tray. Place remaining dough ball on tray. Using your fingertips, spread dough to fit tray, ensuring height is even across surface.
