Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep

  • 1 cup water, for steaming
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 pound store-bought pizza dough, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons parsley, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt


  • 8-Inch Round Baking Pan
  • Small Bowl
  • Step 1

    Pour 1 cup water into the Combi Cooker Pan for steaming. Place the Crisper Tray on top then spray the Ninja™ Multi-Purpose Pan (or 8-inch round baking pan) with cooking spray. Set aside.

  • Step 2

    Round the pizza dough into a ball and add to the 8-inch round pan. Place the pan on top of the Crisper Tray. Slide the Combi Cooker Pan assembly into Level 1.

  • Step 3

    Close door and flip the SmartSwitch™ to COMBI COOKER. Select PROOF, set temperature to 95F and set time to 40 minutes. Press START/ STOP to begin proofing.

  • Step 4

    While dough is proofing, add olive oil, garlic powder, parsley, thyme, and salt to a small bowl and mix together. Set aside.

  • Step 5

    When proofing is complete, open the door and take out the Combi Cooker Pan. Use your fingers to dimple the dough all over. Place the 8-inch round baking pan back onto the Crisper Tray, and return the Combi Cooker Pan to Level 1.

  • Step 6

    Close door of the unit and select COMBI CRISP, set the temperature to 350F and set time to 20 minutes. Press START/STOP to begin cooking (the unit will steam for 3–4 minutes).

  • Step 7

    With 5 minutes left, take out the bread and brush the olive oil mixture on top. Slide pan back into Level 1 and close door to continue cooking.

    When cooking is complete, remove tray and pan and serve bread warm. Focaccia will keep fresh for up to 2 days in an airtight container at room temperature or frozen for 2 months.
