Onion and Cherry Tomato Focaccia

Onion and Cherry Tomato Focaccia

Nothing can match taste and satisfactions of home-made bread. If that bread is Focaccia topped with almost roasted cherry tomatoes and almost caramelized thin red onion slices with concentrated sweet flavor, its unbeatable good.

Sharing with an easy yet very elegant Italian bread. I love snacking on Focaccia and often try various topping combination on Focaccia. Onion and Cherry Tomato topped Focaccia is my all-time favorite.

Focaccia Bread Recipe

I often use Instant (fast action) Dry Yeast to make Focaccia. Instant yeast requires only one kneading cycle which means you can bake and serve this flat bread much faster than regular yeast breads. What are you waiting for? bake one today and enjoy!!
