      Wow. This is incredibly easy to make and tastes delicious. It really took me just one hour to make the bread and it rose and browned beautifully. I topped my bread with the olive oil, parmesan, a bit of sea salt, a light layer of an artichoke & caper tapenade I had in the frige, and then some sliced fresh tomatoes. Really, you could go nuts with toppings on the bread and try a lot of different combinations. It's a versatile recipe that I know I'll be making again, even during the week (did I mention it only takes one hour for this bread, start to finish?!?). Thanks for posting such an easy, excellent recipe.

      This was VERY VERY VERY disappointing. Since typically, everything from this site that has a good rating is always great, I made this for my FIL's birthday dinner. It didn't look good and tasted a bit like a soft pretzel--NOT like foccacia. I wonder if the chef has had real foccacia before? I made 2 batches, one following directions exactly and then a second that would be a rosemary focaccia. It was easy, (used my Kitchen Aid mixer to mix up the dough) but just wasn't foccacia. I WOULD NOT make it again and will be looking for a more authenic recipe.

      I made this bread tonight and I thought it was fabulous. It was as good as any I have had in a restaurant. The only change I made was to top it with dried rosemary and I excluded the mozzarella cheese. I served it with oil and vinegar and my family loved it. Thank you, this was excellent! :)
