“This was a nice and simple bread to make for quick dinner.Loved it with my pasta and meatballs.Nice switch up from garlic bread.I love cheese and next time I would only add a little more.”
“This is such a cool idea.Making this gave me many ideas for different kinds of foccacia to make like this. The only thing that I did differently was to omit the olives as I am not a fan of them. “
