The dough for this focaccia is easily made in the bread machine, but it can be made by hand if you prefer. It makes a delightfully moist and chewy bread with a cheese topping.
I've made this bread twice now by hand rather than in the bread machine and it turned out fabulous. I find most home-made breads to be very "floury" tasting but this one was moist, flavorful and a big hit with my dinner guests. - 22 May 2000 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
One word of caution: Partially cook the bread BEFORE topping with the mozzarella. The bread did not rise where the cheese was. It looked great, smelled wonderful, was even tasty, but.... was undercooked and did not rise with the cheese. Since the combination of flavors is a definite winner, I will try this recipe again with modifications. - 23 Feb 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I made this both the traditional way (at my in-laws who don't have a bread machine) and at home in my machine. Either way, it was delicious! I skipped the garlic and didn't miss it a bit. - 22 Jan 2001 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
