Really good.. I was looking for a way to use my last zucchini and fresh herbs.. Glad I decided on this recipe. I also needed to add more water to the dough.. But that wasn't a big deal. I also cut down on the evoo.. At the last minute, I decided to add diced smoked ham. I baked mine in our outside grill. The end result was AWESOME! I just made sure the temp stayed around 375 to 400. I added a handful or 2 lol, of mozz 5 minutes before it was done. Yeah.. It ended up more like pizza.. But it was delish. :) Thanks.

This is SO simple, but yet SO good. Four of us will polish one of these off in one sitting, easily!

Great basic bread recipe, although I adjusted the measurements. Had to add another 1/2 cup of water to the dough, and cut the olive oil back to 2 tablespoons. I put half the rosemary in the dough and the other half on top. Next time, I would probably increase the amount of herbs inside the bread to give it more flavour. Still, a great recipe, very flexible and my family agreed a wedge would be excellent for mopping up extra pasta sauce.

I am very pleased with this recipe; it was very easy to follow and the results were just what I wanted-a simple, flat, slightly chewy bread to compliment spaghetti. I also kneaded the rosemary in and added olives as others suggested. I will definitely make this again. It will be great for lunch alongside a salad.

I have wanted to make Focaccia Bread for a long time. My bread making skills are not the best. It is surprise bread, we are surprised if we can eat it. I used this recipe this morning for Mothers Day Brunch, I did have to add a little more water. I added black olives and sun dried tomato's to the top, sprinkled with a light coating of Parmesan Cheese. It was a HIT. So good that when I got home today I threw another batter together so I can take some to work tomorrow. Thank you for sharing this very versatile and easy Focaccia recipe!!

This recipe is the best. Thank you for posting it. Instead of 3 cups of white flour, I recommend 2 1/2 cups white, and 1/2 cup whole wheat flour. Also, if you knead in the rosemary, the bread takes on more rosemary flavor. I did have to add more water, but baking does have it's variables. Thanks for the great bread

I love the flexibility of this recipe! I have done things as drastic as kneading 2/3 cup chopped olives and rosemary directly into the dough / pile absurd amounts of parmesan on top before baking, and always stellar results. It's become a favorite for entertaining. I find that dampening my hands before kneading contributes all the extra water needed.

I have used this recipe probably fifteen times so far, but I used my bread machine (as I am a twenty year old student with no cooking patience what-so-ever) to mix the dough (I just threw all the ingredients in there and let it do its job), and it has turned out AMAZING every time! This recipe is so yummy and it really impressed my parents, thank you!

This recipe turned out pretty good, but I had to add an extra 1/2 cup of water, as the dough was very dry and flaky. After that, the dough was much more manageable. The bread turned out great and very tasty. I also didn't use as much olive oil. I will make again, but surely will add more water.
