FANTASTIC! Made exactly as written except I added 1 tsp. dried rosemary to the dough ingredients. This is the lightest, fluffiest foccacia bread I have ever had...will use again as a pizza dough base. Thanks so much for sharing!!

I have made foccacia in the past, but this recipe is delicious. The dough was easy to work with and the bread was lovely and moist. Like other reviewers, my onions had been too fine and were overdone by the end of cooking. I drizzled the hot bread with some olive oil before serving with spaghetti and meatballs. Next time I will try adding the onions nearer the end of cooking. Whole family loved this and have requested that it be made again soon.
