I've said it before and I'll say it again: no one makes focaccia like Rosa, who brings me some every time she makes it. She rolls the dough wafer-thin, and the texture is somewhere between that of traditional Sicilian focaccia dough and filo pastry. One day I am going to watch her preparing it and when I find out how she achieves this miracle, I will tell you. Meanwhile, the picture will have to suffice:

And no one makes pizza quite like Rosa either!

A positive topping to dough ratio is good

How delicious, Welshcakes.
Does Rosa hand make her dough or does she use a machine?
I've made Pizza dough in my food processor but haven't made focaccia.

It's a lovely Autumnal day here although I'm feeling the change in the temperature after our trip to Spain!

Love to you and Simi,

How lovely to have someone treating you like that :-)

Judging by your bread and ice-cream making, I should think you're right up there in that league.

Hi, pink. Yes, Rosa is a treasure. Hi, Anne. I hope that you will meet her one day. Hi, WW. I agree. Rosa hand-makes her dough. I have made focaccia successfully using my food processor. Love to you and Chloe. Hi, Cherie. Yes, it is and I do appreciate it. Many thanks, James.
