Today’s post is my version of Focaccia .The first time I made Focaccia I was in cooking school but before that I had a huge love for this bread .This is not a traditional Focaccia.This version of Focaccia is made with self-rising flour ,greek yogurt and buttermilk.The buttermilk and yogurt gives the bread a bit of tang and I think they work well together with baking powder to help the focaccia rise a little because of the acid that is in the yogurt.The Focaccia is a bit chewier than your regular Focaccia. The herbs on top of the bread is Italian seasoning,Basil,Thyme,Rosemary .This bread is easy to make and takes about 1 hour to make .Its can be topped with anything you want the sky is the limit .Serve this with pasta .I hope you like it .Please leave a comment telling me what you think.Thanks I would greatly appreciate it.
