Herb & Cheese Focaccia Bread

A delivious savory herb and cheese bread for nibbling.


  • 1 roll Pizza Dough- servings for 8
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup Boursin Garlic & Herb Gournay Cheese
  • 1/2 cup Fresh Grated Parmesan
  • 2 tbsp Italian Herb Seasoning
  • 2 tbsp fresh chopped parsley
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp Italian herbs


  • Prepare your pizza dough.
    Use your favorite fresh dough recipe - or favorite pre-made frozen dough.
  • Roll your dough out to flatten it and sprinkle with your parmesan cheese.
  • Fold and roll again to create a rectangle. Mix the butter and boursin cheese & fresh and dry herbs in a bowl and then spread onto the rectangle of dough.
  • Roll your dough up tightly to create a log - and then slice the log in half- leaving just the top of the roll together.
  • Twist your bread on top of each other and then take the 'braid' and roll it in a figure 8 shape- take the top to the right down towards the middle - and the bottom to the left up towards the middle.
  • Pre-heat your oven to 375 (or whatever the pre-made dough specifies) Set aside your brad log and let rise for 20-30 minutes. Brush with a bit of beaten egg or olive oil and bake until golden brown- aproximately 30 minutes.
  • Mix Olive Oil with fresh ground black pepper and herbs for dipping. Slice and serve warm with oil or butter if you prefer.
