This quick but very special bread recipe is your express route to an out-of-control-good-sandwich. Split a square in half and layer it with meats (I recommend prosciutto or salami), veggies, cheeses and a nice drizzle of good extra virgin olive oil, and you’ll be the envy of your workplace or school cafeteria.
Or, simply slice the warm focaccia into dinner roll-sized squares and serve in a bread basket with dinner.
