Bread Baking: Soft, Cheesy 'Focaccia'

Softer and fluffier than focaccia or pizza, think of this as a flat loaf of very flavorful bread topped with gooey cheese. If you want it a little crisper, just bake it longer. And here's a bonus: you can make it well ahead of time, then reheat it in the oven so you've got warm bread with melty cheese whenever you need to serve it. More

Fresh strong coffee and a bit of wine work well with hot focaccia. More
