I know I usually share recipes on Fridays but this one was so good, I just couldn’t wait to tell you about it. Plus, it’s early and the stores are still open for a little while. This recipe is easy. You definitely have time to make it today if you want to. This may just be my favorite gluten-free bread ever! So tasty with the perfect texture and no weird after-taste. You know what I mean, right?
I can’t take credit for this one. Its all Chef Michelle Tampakis. She gave me permission to post the recipe. She is the best! When we were making pizza in culinary school this week, she brought in gluten-free dough for us to share. I was so excited and it tasted great! Thank you Chef Michelle!
I’ll keep this one short so I can get it out to you. I topped half with thinly sliced tomatoes and left the other half plain (I’ll admit it…not all of my kids love veggies!). I bought some seasoned ciliegine mozzarella to serve with the focaccia. The options are limitless. How about some fresh prosciutto, caramelized onions and tomato sauce on top. Mmmm. Now we’re talking.
Have a very Happy 4th of July!!
