Fig Focaccia makes a great hors d’oeuvres, any time of the year. Picture serving this Fig Focaccia at the beginning of a warm gathering of friends accompanied by some wonderful mulled wine.
Did you know that the only difference between pizza and focaccia is the thickness of the dough? Instead of being baked immediately after shaping, focaccia dough is left to rise a second time before baking. The history of focaccia bread goes back a long time-all the way back to ancient Rome, to be exact.
Want to make this really easy? Go to Trader Joes and get their prepared pizza dough and make this as a fig and cheese pizza. Nobody kneads (chuckle) to know!
Adapting our Fig Focaccia
Any recipe is not perfect until you’ve added your own touch to it. At Waxing Kara Honey House we encourage you to play with your food. Change up this recipe. Here are some ideas –
- Make this focaccia in a 20 inch pizza pan or a 10×15 inch rectangular baking pan. Round or rectangular, whatever is easiest for you.
- Change up your cheeses or even blend them. Herbed goat cheese and bleu cheese pair nicely with figs, so does gorgonzola. It’s all a matter of your personal preference.
- Add toppings like slivered almonds or candied pecans or a few pieces of prosciutto.
