i find this focaccia just amazing... good to use the leftovers of pizza or bread dough, it is a quick and tasty stuffed bread perfect to be brought to a pic nic or just a delicious easy to make lunch.
the filling can be made of whatever ingredients you like or you have at hand, i usually go with buffalo mozzarella, fresh tomato, parma ham or culatello, basil, olive oil, salt and pepper.
wrap a tin or pot with baking paper and once the filing is spread onto the dough, just fold it and put it in the baking tin.
bake for about 18min in pre heated oven at 230-250°C, then spread a little olive oil on the surface and bake for 5min more.
although this bread is pretty good even cooled, when it's still hot imo it tastes better.. the mozzarella is still melting, tomatoes and basil emanate their warm flavors as the focaccia is cut :)
