Wheat Focaccia with Tomato and Rosemary Saracen


Foccacia is so light and airy and delicious, it would be a shame to have to wait until you go to the nearest Italian bakery to enjoy a slice (or two). Especially when it's easy enough to achieve at home, and particularly if you have a bread machine do the heavy lifting. The dough is stretched with your hands, rather than rolled out with a pin, and then pressed with the handle of a wooden spoon to create the trademark dimples.
