Hello everyone, welcome to my latest recipe for Gluten and Dairy Free Basil & Sea Salt Focaccia.

I’m still working on creating a series of gluten and dairy free bread recipes and the latest addition to that is basil and sea salt focaccia.  The outside has that lovely crisp almost chewiness (not sure if that sounds good) of focaccia and the inside is lovely and fluffy.

This bread goes perfect with pasta or risotto.  I actually saw a picture of some lovely little individual round focaccias with sun-dried tomatoes, I’ll need to try that out sometime.
