How to Reheat Focaccia Bread in an Oven/Toaster Oven: A Step-by-Step Guide
When it comes to reheating focaccia bread, there really is just one viable option and that would be the oven/toaster oven.
The oven is the perfect option, simply because it can give it that warm and crispy taste, reminiscent as to when the focaccia was first baked.
The whole process is pretty quick and simple and the reheating steps are listed below:
- preheat the oven to 375°F
- Place the focaccia bread on a baking sheet
- Put the baking sheet with the bread in the oven for around 10 minutes or till it is ho and crispy
- Once heated up to your liking, remove, let cool and eat.

Can You Reheat Frozen Focaccia Bread?
If you stored some focaccia in the freezer to be enjoyed at a later date and wondering if you would be able to reheat it properly, yes, you absolutely can.
When packaged properly, focaccia freezes well, so many people use it as a good storage option for future use.
The process of reheating frozen focaccia is similar to what we mentioned above, just with one extra step.
The only thing that is different is, you would have to allow the bread to defrost, before it was reheated in the oven.
To defrost the bread, take it from the freezer and let sit at room temperature till fully thawed out. Then you can go through the whole oven reheating process.
Microwave: Should It Be Used to Reheat This Bread?
While most people have a microwave, I did not list it as an option for reheating focaccia.
The reason for this is that microwaves are not good at warming up baked foods like bread. If you have ever used a microwave to reheat any baked item, you would’ve noticed that it comes out soft and rubbery (depends on how long you zap it for), as opposed to warm and toasty.
So you can use the microwave to reheat focaccia, but it really should be to gently warm it up and you definitely will not get the same oven baked results. The bread will be warm and slightly soft, not crispy.

Wrapping it up
As you can see, reheating and warming up focaccia bread is a quick and simple process, one you have an oven or toaster oven on hand.
The oven/toaster oven will warm the bread up perfectly and when done right, it would taste almost as if it was freshly made.
Can the microwave be used, yes, but it should only be done to gently warm the bread and you definitely won’t get the same result as if it were done in the oven.
With that said, enjoy your focaccia. I hope it tastes amazing!
