A shortcut to focaccia
Frozen bread dough is the key. Dress it up with cheese and herbs
Have you ever thought about making tender, fragrant focaccia like you find at restaurants and Italian bakeries, but been intimidated by visions of endless kneading and hours of rising dough? The following recipe puts all these concerns to rest.
Simply thaw two loaves of frozen bread dough, then stretch one in a shallow baking pan to give it the flatness of focaccia. Top with feta cheese, herbs, pepper, and another layer of dough, let it rise about 45 minutes, then bake to golden brown perfection. It’s a versatile accompaniment to soups, salads, and entrées, or can stand on its own as a predinner nibble with a glass of wine.
