How To Make Rosemary Parmesan Focaccia On Your Traeger

Posted by Susie B. on March 4, 2013

Nothing says, "I am a Rockstar in the Kitchen" like presenting your loved ones with warm home baked bread. While it may seem intimidating, this Traeger'ed Focaccia bread is simple and sure to impress.

The crust is perfectly crisp, the bread itself is airy and light, and the coarse salt and fresh rosemary add a punch of flavor that pushed this bread to the top of the "Most Requested Traeger Recipes" list.

Which is saying something.

That list is pretty long.

This recipe makes two pans of bread and serves 16. Or it serves 9 if you happen to devour an entire pan by yourself. Enjoy!

Rosemary Parmesan Focaccia


Serves: 16
Recommended Pellets: Oak or Hickory
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Sit Time: 2 hours
Cook Time: 35-40 Minutes


1 cup warm water (100 to 110 degrees F), or more as needed
2 1/4-ounce package active dry yeast
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
2-1/2 cups bread flour (Bread flour has a higher protein content, making it ideal for denser yeast breads like focaccia. If you do not have bread flour, you can substitute an equal amount of all-purpose flour, though your bread might take longer to rise.), or more as needed
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup olive oil, plus more as needed
1/8 teaspoon hot red pepper flake
1-1/2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, plus more as needed
1-1/2 tablespoons shredded parmesan cheese
Coarse salt (kosher or sea salt)


Measure the water in a glass measuring cup. Stir in the yeast and sugar. Let rest for in a warm place. After 5 to 10 minutes, the mixture should be foamy, indicating the yeast is “alive”. If it does not foam, discard it and start again.

Pour the water/yeast mixture in the bowl of a food processor.

Add 1 cup of the flour as well as the salt and 1/4 cup of olive oil. Pulse several times to blend.

Add the remaining flour, rosemary, and hot pepper flakes. Process the dough until it’s smooth and elastic and pulls away from the sides of the bowl, adding small amounts of flour or water through the feed tube if the dough is respectively too wet or too dry.

Let the dough rise in the covered food processor bowl in a warm place until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.

Remove the dough from the food processor (it will deflate) and turn onto a lightly floured surface.

Oil two 8- to 9-inch round cake pans generously with olive oil. (Just pour a couple of glugs in and tilt the pan to spread the oil.) Divide the dough into two equal pieces, shape into disks, and put one in each prepared cake pan. Oil the top of each disk with olive oil and dimple the dough with your fingertips.

Sprinkle lightly with coarse salt, and if desired, additional rosemary and parmesan cheese.

Cover the focaccia dough with plastic wrap and let the dough rise in a warm place, about 45 minutes to an hour. When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 400 degrees F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes. Put the pans with the focaccia dough directly on the grill grate.

Bake until the focaccia breads are light golden in color and baked through, 35 to 40 minutes, rotating the pans halfway through the baking time. Let cool slightly before removing from the pans. Cut into wedges for serving.

This recipe is a sure winner, and would be the perfect complement to any meal coming off of your Traeger. Enjoy!

I'm impressed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that's equally educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you've hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I found this in my search for something relating to this.

Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with? I'm planning to start my own blog soon but I'm having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.                  P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

Hi this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
