Hubby and I tried the comercially available packs of focaccia bread last Christmas and from there, we fell in love it. We love the onion and herb flavor, but the cheese focaccia bread was not so bad.
But did you know that:
Focaccia is related to pizza, but not considered to be the same.Information sourced from Wikipedia
By far the most typical focaccia is simply baked dough topped with olive oil and a simple herb like rosemary or sage, and salted with coarse salt.
Focaccia doughs are similar in style and texture to pizza doughs, consisting of high-gluten flour, oil, water, salt and yeast. It is typically rolled out or pressed by hand into a thick layer of dough and then baked in a stone-bottom or hearth oven.
Focaccia is used extensively as a sandwich bread outside of Italy.
