This is a quick and easy side that can complement almost any meal. I served this at an Italian themed Christmas Dinner with Baked Ziti, Macaroni and Cheese With Egg Noodles and Cream, along with veggies (zucchini and asparagus) and a green leafy salad. Everyone went crazy over this bread, even the kids. From "Every Day Italian" on Food Network.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Position the oven rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 450 degrees.
  2. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured work surface, to 1/2 inch thick.
  3. Transfer the dough to a heavy large baking sheet. Using a fork, pierce the dough all over.
  4. Drizzle the oil over the dough. Sprinkle with thyme and salt.
  5. Bake until golden, about 15 minutes. Remove from oven and cut into serving size wedges.
  6. Note: When I made this, I added crushed garlic to the oil before brushing it onto the dough, and I after sprinkling the thyme, I also sprinkled on some parmesan cheese.

Just finished making this for Sunday football game time. I agree with the previous reviewer, the topping was more like a topping for focciaccia but either way, it's delicious. Easy to put together, and I also used a bit of minced garlic mixed with the oil and parm cheese. Great!

The name is kinda misleading to me, I thought this was going to be more of a pizza but it is more of a foccacia bread. I used bread from Recipe #239074 and made about half a batch of this. This went great with Recipe #219798 for an excellent dinner! Very good recipe!

Looks like the picture showed but not my review so i will try again. This was wonderful! I added crushed rosemary with the thyme as well as garlic, and used a foccaccia recipe i had for the dough. I ate half of it, but will be using the other half for a panini tomorrow :)
