Focaccia sounds like a nice piece of poetry, but we are really talking about Italian flat bread. It originates from the area around the Ligurian coast, in the vicinity of Genoa. The name probably comes from the Latin ‘focus’ (hearth), as it was called by the Etruscans baking the bread on hot stones.
And that is where our focaccia really comes from: handmade in Genoa, and driven here by Vespa… or something in that nature.
The dough of focaccia is comparable to that of a pizza, but slightly thicker. The base consists of flour with a high level of gluten, oil, water, sugar, salt and yeast. The taste of the bread can be enhanced by utilizing olive oil and herbs; or by topping it with cheese, ham or vegetables. Focaccia is widely used in Italy as sandwich bread, but can also be used as a side dish with Italian meals, with a lick of butter.
