Turn Store-Bought Focaccia into Something Shop Stopping

Focaccia is a delicious kind of Italian bread that is crunchy yet light, and so satisfying. While making it at home isn’t too hard, if you’re someone who doesn’t want to work hard for their bread, no one blames you! Lots of stores and delis now carry plain focaccias, and the best thing to do is buy it and jazz it up yourself at home! If you need some inspiration, here are some great toppings.


Pesto is a delicious sauce for pasta and it’s also incredible on bread! Make your own by blitzing together basil, parmesan, pine nuts, garlic, and olive oil in a food processor until smooth. Or, get a jar from the grocery store! Spread it on top of the focaccia, top it with a little more cheese, and instantly your mouth will be watering.

Roasted Vegetables

Since focaccia has a similar texture to pizza, it’s no wonder that roasted vegetables taste absolutely delicious on it! You can roast the vegetables separate or right on top of the focaccia so all the juices drip into it. Good vegetables to use are onions, zucchini, eggplant, and tomatoes, covered in herbs like basil, thyme, oregano, and parsley.
