What is Focaccia Bread

Just to give you a little background on Focaccia (pronounced fo-kah-cha), it is a flat bread similar to pizza dough that you can make either sweet or savory. It originates in the providence of Liguria in Italy. Liguria is the best known region for their classic focaccia, which is called “classica” in Genoa. Typically it is flattened to about 1/2 to 1 inch thick, with indentations throughout the whole surface. Focaccia bread has a lot of herbs and olive oil with cheese and other toppings as a garnish.
