Focaccia Bread Pizza!

While around here, we usually go for a thin crust pizza, every so often we're in the mood for pizza with a big thick crust and plenty of toppings.  My focaccia bread recipe makes a perfect thick and hearty crust for heavier toppings.  My son topped this pizza himself for his birthday. It was delicious! Enjoy!

Serves 4-6

Make 1 batch of my easy Focaccia Bread.  You can leave off sprinkling on salt & herbs after brushing with olive oil.  Bake as directed.

Remove from oven, and top with the following (or other pizza toppings of your choice):
spaghetti sauce, use generously
fresh spinach, diced finely
fresh sliced mozzarella
diced ham or pepperoni
grated parmesan, sprinkle lightly over entire pizza before cooking
olive tapenade, spread lightly (optional)
red chili flakes (optional)

Plenty of toppings piled on by my daughter.
Bake at 400F for about 5 minutes, then slide the pizza directly onto the rack for another 5-10 minutes until toppings are nicely cooked (depends on how many toppings you put on).   Cooking directly on the rack ensures a nice crisp bottom crust.  

Remove carefully from oven (Either back onto the pan or onto a large cutting board).  Slice and serve! After slicing, it's best to place pizza on a wire cooling rack to ensure the bottom stays nice and crisp. Enjoy!
