Let me tell you … we were not that adventurous when it comes to groceries before we started blogging. We just always go to the same aisle and buys only stuff we are familiar with. Since we wanted to blog on something new these days, we began to pay more attention to stuff we normally ignore. This is one new food to us and have never heard of.
Focaccia (pronounced as foh-KAH-cha) is a flat bread topped with stuff, very much like what you see in pizzas. Except that we see that they don’t use pizza sauce, at least not the one we bought. The one below, caramelized oinion and pesto chicken, costs $4.99 only.
Focaccia is a popular Italian and Greek dish. It is often baked with herbs and cheese added to the dough. Focaccia can be looked upon as a predecessor of the modern pizza.
We like a crispy texture — to do that we have to bake it with direct heat (i.e. without a tray). Baking takes 25 minutes in a 400F pre-heated oven.
Compared to pizzas, this is a thad too dry. But the bread was really crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. At least we know what a Focaccia is now.
