Focaccia recipes



By Paul Hollywood

An Italian olive-oil bread, quite flat and usually round or square-shaped. It has an almost cake-like texture and is often flavoured with herbs such as rosemary, sage or basil, topped with olives or tapenade, or even filled with ham or cheese. It’s fun to experiment with making your own and adding various toppings and fillings. Various types of focaccia are available in supermarkets, including a ready-to-bake version, which just needs finishing off in a pre-heated oven for a few minutes. Cut it into generous wedges and serve with olive oil and balsamic vinegar for dipping.
