Focaccia di Recco (Italian Flatbread)
In this video, you’ll see how to make homemade cheese-filled, Ligurian-style Italian flatbread. The secret to this recipe is the baking pan. Chef John uses a quarter sheet, over which you'll stretch a thin sheet of dough. Then you'll add dollops of Crescenza or Stracchino cheese followed by a second layer of dough stretched over the top. It’s a great technique. See how it’s done. You’ll also see how to prepare the simple, soft, elastic but not too sticky dough. Watch the video, then get the recipe for Chef John’s Focaccia di Recco. Try it with some simply dressed fresh arugula.
