Focaccia is a yeast-leavened Italian bread made with wheat flour. The dough, before it’s baked, is similar to pizza dough. In Italy, it’s often called ‘pizza bianca.” A lot of people call focaccia a flatbread, which isn’t exactly accurate because it has the crumb and rise that you can only get from yeast. Instead of being baked as a loaf, focaccia is baked in a rectangle, so it’s flatter than a loaf. A focaccia sandwich works so well because you get plenty of crispy crust without as much interior bread filler. It’s just the right amount of bread to give you that delicious yeast bread essence while allowing the sandwich fillings to shine.
