Herbed Focaccia

Foccacia is an Italian flat-bread, it is the easiest bread you can make, you let the dough rise (rest) once, punch it down, flatten it and pop it into the oven. It is like a thick pizza sans the pizza sauce and meat toppings. This is best eaten freshly made, seasoned with garlic sea salt and dipped in extra-virgin olive oil with balsamic vinegar.

Have it as a side to pasta, and soups and make sandwiches with it. Super easy to make and highly customizable, just like pizzas. You can add in lots of herbs, just like the recipe below or make it so extra with sun dried tomatoes, caramelized onions, anchovies, ham, lots of cheese or whatever you feel like adding that you happen to have at home at the moment.

Sprinkle with fleur de sel or sea salt. Serve warm with extra-virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

My daughter made this herbed focaccia 🙂 She recently took an interest in baking to keep herself busy at home. #enhancedcommunityquarantine #stayhome #staysane #staycovid19free
