Focaccia is nothing but pizza base, the dough is literally drenched in olive oil and loaded with rosemary and basil herb. Some bake it plain and some other top it with caramelized onions and so on. I like to eat veggies a lot, so I added some veggies to my bread. It’s really personal preference, you can add whatever you want, the choice is endless.
