Focaccia Bread

focaccia 012

I wanted make focaccia bread from a long time; I tried it out while I was in Bangalore too. I don’t know I don’t like the taste or the yeast whatever the reason was, I dint like it at all. Here in the US the quality of the yeast is very good, after coming here I have baked dinner rolls, burger buns and everything came out good to look and eat so I thought will try something else and decided to make Focaccia. the main reason I wanted to make focaccia was, last week I and DH had gone for dinner to a Italian restaurant there they serve this focaccia and a kind of sauce with olive oil and chilli flakes first even before we order , we need to dip the focaccia in the sauce and eat and its divine I must say , so I wanted to make it at home and finally taking tips from other recipes I have made some changes and adjustments according to my taste, when you try you too can make your version, so lets make the Focaccia bread.

Notes

The dough will be and should be  sticky but don’t worry the bread will be fine.

The seasoning what ever the choice is yours, I have used more of garlic coz I like garlic flavour.
