What is Olive Garlic Bread?

Garlic olive oil bread can be called a different version of the classic focaccia. Focaccia is an Italian bread made with an abundance of olive oil and sea salt. A focaccia can be topped with many varied items that include sliced fruits and vegetables or even some pickled vegetables. In this version, we have added a lot of olives and garlic oil, and a generous sprinkle of sea salt. This bread is cooked in a springform pan, so it is thick and soft.

    Expert Tips

    1) Knead the dough as much as possible for good gluten development and better bread.

    2) Be gentle while transferring the bread to the mould as we dont want to deflate it.

    3) If you let the bread cool after it comes out of the oven, the results would be better.
