Last weekend, I watched Pioneer Woman make a simple focaccia out of store bought pizza dough and I knew immediately I wanted to put a Christmas spin on it. This was so simple to come together and will be the hit on your holiday table.
1 1/2 tbs extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp dried parsley
1 clove garlic, minced
Handful of cherry tomatoes
4 oz fresh mozzarella
Plenty of salt and fresh cracked black pepper
Preheat the dough to 400F.
Roll out your dough onto a floured surface and place onto a tray prepped with a bit of cornmeal (so it won’t stick).
Drizzle 1 tbs of olive oil over the top and add the garlic, herbs and the salt and pepper.
Slice the tomatoes and gently press down into the dough. Drizzle with a touch more oil and place into the oven for 20 minutes.
After 20 minutes, or when your dough is cooked and beginning to brown, remove the focaccia from the oven and add the mozzarella cheese.
Place back into the oven and broil for 2-3 minutes.
