This is one of my favourite carbohydrates! There are so many things you can do with it. I used to add sliced jalapeños to the top when my step son was still living at home, but now I skip those and go for extra cheese!

I’ve been making this focaccia for years. It’s salty, cheesy and the perfect accompaniment for soups and salads; try it to make sandwiches with! I use one of my favourite seasonings, spicy spaghetti, for this recipe. It’s delicious! I use this seasoning for my pizza dough recipe as well.

How to make focaccia bread

Focaccia takes a bit of time to make because it needs a few rising times. First you form the dough with is just a few simple ingredients, then cover with plastic wrap and let rise for 1 hour. Next you flip the dough onto a greased baking sheet and spread the dough out using your fingers to cover the whole pan. You want the dough to look knobbly and dented, this gives the bread the desired texture. Cover with plastic again and allow the dough to rise for another hour. Sprinkle with salt and cheese and bake at 425° for 15 minutes!
