Fresh Tomato-Basil Focaccia

Schiacciata is the Tuscan word for what most English-speakers might recognize as “focaccia.” Aptly meaning “squashed” or “flattened,” schiacciata is flattened with the fingers of the baker, leaving characteristic pockets along the top of the dough that hold little dredges of olive oil and salt.  This recipe for focaccia embeds a variety of herbs and thin slices of garlic in the dough before baking.  It’s the perfect base for a heaping pile of fresh ingredients, like cherry tomatoes and torn basil.
