Focaccia bread is made with a yeast dough, which is very easy and forgiving. If you feel uncomfortable working with yeast, this is a great place to start because the presence of olive oil 1) makes the dough a bit easier to work with, and 2) prevents it from drying out if baked too long. I love serving focaccia bread when I have company; it's neither time-consuming nor demanding, and I've found that guests always appreciate homemade bread. It's also the bread I use if I'm serving "fancified" sandwiches for dinner (i.e. salmon or eggplant sandwiches). Read more.
