Italian-Style Focaccia Bread ( gluten free, vegan )

Have you ever been dreaming of a gluten free focaccia?

Authentic focaccia is flat light and airy.

Quality extra virgin olive oil will give the authentic taste to this flat bread.

My simple recipe is made with an overnight dough which makes the recipe special!

I used a lot of ready flour mix on this recipe so this is not the most healthiest of my recipes. Eating isn’t always just about the healthiness but it’s about enjoying life.

 

Im really excited about this recipe because guess what?! It’s perfect for making pizza too! You can make a thicker pan pizza or a thin crispy pizza crust using the recipe. Life just got a little better, right?

 

You can shape your own focaccia just the way you like, there are no rules for that.

You can top the bread with your favorite herbs and olive oil, it’s all up to you!

The result is going to  surprise  you. In a very enjoyable way. I guarantee.

 

Im so happy sharing this olive oil bread recipe with you today! The taste and texture is so close to the real thing!

I hope you got interested and  excited about this recipe! Happy baking sessions to all of you!
