Olive and Rosemary Focaccia made with Bisquick

If you happen to have some Bisquick on hand and are looking for a quick bread for dinner, this Olive and Rosemary Focaccia whipped up in no time. I had rosemary from my planter and the winey-briney kalamata olives added a nice little bite of tangy flavor. Will this replace your favorite yeast based focaccia recipe? Probably not, but I do think it's worth a try if you're pressed for time or curious to try something new.

Olive and Rosemary Focaccia-from Betty Crocker
2 C Bisquick
2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 C hot water
1/2 C pitted Kalamata olives-I cut mine in half
2 tsp chopped fresh rosemary, or 1/2 tsp dried rosemary crushed
1 tsp olive oil-could use more
  1. Mix Bisquick, garlic and water until stiff dough forms, let sit for 5 minutes.
  2. Sprinkle Bisquick on work surface, lightly roll dough in it. Shape into ball and knead 50 times.
  3. On ungreased cookie sheet, roll or press dough into 8" round. Sprinkle on olives, gently press into dough. Sprinkle with rosemary. I suggest dimpling the dough a bit with your fingers too.
  4. Bake 12-14 minutes at 400 degrees or until lightly golden brown. 
  5. Brush oil over top, let sit 10 minutes, cut into 16 wedges with serrated knife.
Try something new and have a happy day:@)


  1. I used to make focaccia all the time, it is so good, especially with fresh rosemary! I've never would have thought bisquick would work, but it looks like it was perfect! Pinned to try, thanks Lynn

  2. I'm going to pin this also. Any bread with Rosemary and Olives has got to be good!

  3. That looks so good, but as I over ate donuts on our trip I can have no bread until I can fit into my jeans....... It will be a while

  4. This sounds amazing! Olives and Focaccia- my mouth is watering!

  5. A nice quick version of focaccia sounds great and I do have Bisquick in the pantry!

  6. That sounds like a nice and easy recipe, Lynn!
