An Easy, Healthy, and Mess-Free Activity
The team behind Producers Stories is crazy about food—especially food with a story to tell. We’re passionate about bringing farm-to-table flavors into your home with recipes, product spotlights, and blogs highlighting our farmers’ voices.
We love the rustic and warm feeling of focaccia, so it was only natural to keep up with the latest trend and create our own focaccia art. Making a yeast dough can be time-consuming and messy, so we opted for our producer Snacktivist Foods’ Focaccia Mix to get the job done.

For the focaccia:
- 1 package Snacktivist Foods Rosemary and Garlic Focaccia mix
- 1/3 cup olive oil or butter
- 2 cups water
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Red onions
- Black olives
- Different colored bell peppers
- Optional: any other veggies and herbs you like
For the toppings:
- Slice your veggies and herbs into different shapes.
- Set aside until ready to use.
For the focaccia:
- Preheat the oven to 400 F / 200 C.
- Add the entire content of 1 packet of snacktivist Rosemary Focaccia Bread Mix to a bowl.
- Add the olive oil or butter, and water. Mix until all ingredients are well incorporated.
- Prepare a baking tray with parchment paper and spread the mixture evenly. Let the dough rise for 10 minutes on the counter.
- After the dough has slightly risen, drizzle with the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
- Use the chives, tomatoes, onions, bell pepper, garlic and olives to create a decorative garden scene on the focaccia. Be careful not to press the ingredients into the dough, as this could burst air bubbles and cause your focaccia to flatten.
- Once your art is ready, sprinkle with salt and bake for 10 minutes, or until the veggies are cooked and the edges are golden.
- Remove from the oven and let it cool for 5 minutes before serving.
