Focaccia is basically a pizza crust type of bread topped with thinly sliced vegetables and cheese... no sauce. You can eat this as a light lunch, with a salad, with dinner or as a snack. I use my pizza crust recipe with a slight variation.


1 cup warm water
pinch sugar
1 package dry yeast (2 1/4 tsp.)
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 Tbsp. Italian Seasoning
2 1/2 cups flour

Stir hot water, sugar and dry yeast until blended. Add oil, salt and flour. (I use a food processor). Stir until mixture forms a soft ball. Let rest 5 minutes. Roll out on a pizza stone or cookie sheet sprinkled with corn meal. Top with thinly sliced vegetables such as tomatoes, red onions and garlic, bell peppers. If desired, sprinkle with cheese such as mozzarella. Bake 450 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
