Focaccia is a traditional recipe from Italy. Focaccia means loaf in Italian and refers to a well-ventilated flat bread covered with herbs, spices, fresh tomatoes, among other things. Its dough is very similar to that of pizza, olive oil and coarse salt are usually added to give it even more flavor.

There are some tips to help you get a better result:

– Sink the dough with the fingertips so that it aerates more and is left with the typical shape of the focaccia. This ensures that the bread does not swell.

-Respect the lifting times. It is important to let the olive and rosemary focaccia dough rise until it doubles in size.

-You can add rock, sea or grill salt on top just before taking the Focaccia baked
