Introducing our Italian Herb Focaccia Skillet Bread Mix – a gateway to the enchanting flavors of Italy, ready to grace your table in just a little over an hour. With simple steps and superb results, this mix calls for a touch of water, a drizzle of olive oil, and a brief hour of rest before it's destined for a cast iron skillet. A mere 20-25 minutes of baking at 450 degrees will yield a culinary masterpiece that boasts a crisp, golden-brown top and bottom, while harboring a lusciously moist and chewy center.
Sprinkle with a little flake salt and a dusting of Parmesan cheese, or you can personalize your focaccia with an array of toppings – sundried tomatoes, gooey mozzarella cheese, savory bacon, and beyond. The creative possibilities extend even further, inviting you to infuse olive oil directly into the mix, amplifying the experience with additional layers of flavor. Imagine serving this delectable focaccia as a striking antipasto, a centerpiece table bread that instantly elevates any meal, or as the foundation for an indulgent sandwich. Depending on your chosen toppings, your culinary creation might even morph into a divine pizza-focaccia fusion, merging the best of both worlds.
