The crunchy focaccia is irresistible!

Crispy focaccia

The crispy focaccia is a variant of the classic recipe perfect both to replace bread and to make delicious croutons.

Among the most popular recipes of Ligurian cuisine there is certainly the Genoese focaccia but what happens if we increase the cooking times of the recipe and roll it out thinner ? We get a crunchy focaccia, perfect to serve instead of bread or to turn into a crouton.

It is a truly unusual recipe that certainly cannot be compared to the original one, but we can guarantee you that once you try it you will never be able to do without it. Sure, the preparation requires some patience due to the different steps, but the result is really worth the effort.
