This simple, rustic focaccia has two additional options: jalapeños and cheese (vegetarian) or tomatoes, herbs and garlic.
Flatbreads like focaccia are perfect for starters! They use simple ingredients and tools, don’t require a lot of active cooking time, and are highly customizable, and it’s easy to know when it’s done right.
Spread your choice of toppings (without the olive oil and sea salt) on the surface of the dough. Then put the top layer on the dough, digging it in quickly and carefully with all your fingers (as if you were a very passionate but very bad pianist). Coat the surface with a generous drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of sea salt before baking until golden brown.
