Easy Honey and Smoked Salt Focaccia
Soft Focaccia with honey
This focaccia is so simple, yet so surprising and utterly delicious! Pillowy and soft, it makes the perfect base for any sandwich (we strongly recommend roasted chicken and/or goat cheese sandwiches). It can also be eaten on its own, just dipped in good quality olive oil and a touch of balsamic vinegar. Either way, this recipe is a heart winner and so easy to make, it will become a routine in your kitchen!
