As many of you know I have always loved making bread from scratch, and this focaccia was indeed a rewarding bread. Focaccia is a delicious Italian flat bread flavored with a extra-virgin olive oil, rosemary and flaky sea salt for the classic version. Focaccia can be made though with various toppings from various herbs to dried tomatoes, olives, caramelized onion, different spices or whatever you prefer best.
Making focaccia is quite relaxing, as it needs working the dough with your palms and fingers, stretching and creating holes into the dough. It is easy to prepare and it’s really really delicious. It has a crispy top and bottom crust with soft, elastic airy crumb.
For best results it is essential to use a strong flour, rich in gluten for a soft and elastic bread as well as a first cold pressed extra-virgin olive oil and fresh rosemary for an irresistible flavor.
