Focaccia. The next time I make it, I will sprinkle garlic salt before adding the mozzarella. This is a great recipe, it just needs to be a little more clear for the cook who isn't all that familiar with bread baking. Focaccia (Italian pronunciation: [foˈkattʃa]; Ligurian: fugassa) is a flat oven-baked Italian bread product similar in style and texture to pizza dough.
Focaccia, a simple Italian flatbread, can be patted thin for bread with a lot of chew, or thicker for a softer bread. The drizzle of olive oil and scattering of herbs is key to the bread's delicious flavor. Our focaccia has a moist but airy crumb sandwiched between thin but ultra-crunchy top and bottom crusts, thanks to a generous amount of olive oil in the pan and on top of the dough. You can cook Focaccia using 7 ingredients and 8 steps. Here is how you cook it.

Meet my all-time favorite focaccia bread recipe. ♡ It was actually one of the very first bread recipes that I learned to make years ago, and still continues to be a fave because it is so simple to make. Focaccia is a soft and fluffy flat bread made with olive oil and various toppings. It originated in Genoa, Italy, and has since become one of the most popular breads and Italian recipes in the world. You can eat Focaccia bread any time of the day, with coffee for breakfast, with a glass of wine during meal time, or as a snack or appetizer throughout the day. The preparation was a snap, but the final product, even with the dimpling and ample olive oil, had a texture a lot more like white sandwich bread than it did focaccia.
