Hi—

I recently made the following Focaccia:

    http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Rosemary-Focaccia-106275

I brushed a generous amount of olive oil onto a non-stick baking sheet before putting down the dough, but the Focaccia stuck quite a bit after baking and it was a mess. I need to make it again and was wondering if I could put parchment on the pan rather than olive oil?

-Would this help with the sticking issue?

-If I put the parchment without olive oil, would that make the bottom crust less crispy?

Thanks,
Tim

Tim,

I made the focaccia recipe from the Bread Bible just recently and my focaccia didn’t stick at all.  Here’s how I did it:

I generously oiled the pan, put a layer of parchment on top, then generously oiled the parchment. 

My focaccia was on ball bearings.

Best of Luck!
