Focaccia

Focaccia is one of my favorite bread recipes. It’s one of the least labor-intensive since there isn’t any kneading. The dough is very wet, which is perfect for a tender, yet chewy, bread with a very distinct salt bite. And you can decorate it to turn it into garden focaccia. —James Schend, Taste of Home Deputy Editor
