- Spread the dough to the edges of the pan with your fingers, starting from the center and working your way out.
- Add the tomatoes and drizzle the remaining oil over them. Sprinkle the oregano over the entire surface of the focaccia, followed by a sprinkle of salt as desired.
- Cover with plastic wrap and set aside to rise in a warm place for 1 hour. Bake for 30-35 minutes.
