Lazy Mom's Focaccia

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by HeatherFeather

A simple, fast focaccia bread for lazy nights. This looks fancy, but starts with a tube of pizza dough. Adapted from Woman's Day. If you don't care fro olives, try other toppings - such as oil cured sundried tomatoes or marinated artichoke hearts (drain well).

Okay...I guess this means I'm lazy! This came out really well, I made 3 of these to go w/#43336(Pasta E.Fagioli Mix) for gift baskets for my DS's teachers for Holiday Gifts. I topped them with an assortment of sliced onions, grated parmesan, marinated artichokes, mushrooms, sundried tomatoes, and also used sliced de-seeded cherry tomatoes. Instead of using olive oil to drizzle with I used the olive oil from the jarred sundried tomatoes. I asked the deli dept. from my supermarket for a few Focaccia bags, so it was a perfect fit. Thank You HeatherFeather!
