Potato Focaccia

Quick Thyme and Potato Focaccia

Making beautiful soft focaccia at home is easier than you might think. It requires zero cooking skills and very little prep. For this Quick Thyme and Potato Focaccia, I used two bags of store-bought fresh pizza dough and it worked out amazing. I just placed the dough in a baking dish and let it rest and proof one more time for one hour. Then dimpled it with my fingers, drizzled with olive oil, and arranged thinly sliced small potato and fresh thyme. So easy! After an hour of baking, I got a beautiful golden brown focaccia for dinner. I highly recommend this recipe, just try to get good quality organic dough for the best result. Enjoy!
