ABOUT Whole Wheat Focaccia RECIPE

I am a die hard fan of focaccia’s. I have been trying different versions of it but I guess I landed on a recipe that works out the best for me. For those of you who do not know what this is, focaccia is a flat bread that resembles a pizza dough. It can be topped with tomatoes, olives, onions and herbs
