Focaccia Bread

5.0
1 rating
Focaccia bread. You know, the one that is crusty on the outside and sumptuously soft and perfectly bread-y on the inside. Not only is this recipe fool-proof, it is versatile. It can be topped with savory or sweet toppings. Some days, this is amazing with fresh rosemary and a drizzle of olive oil. Some days, with sweet summer tomatoes and fresh mozzarella.
