In a bowl or planetary mixer, mix all the ingredients together. When the dough is even and fairly compact, pour it onto a baking tin covered with parchment paper, pour a good amount of oil on the surface to help you flatten out the dough using your hands, lightly sinking your fingers in to give it the typical focaccia appearance. Let rise for about 2 hours or until the dough has doubled in volume.
Bake for about 30 minutes in a static oven preheated to 200°C.
Let the focaccia cool and brush the surface with an emulsion of water, extra virgin olive oil and a pinch of salt.
