    BakinBaby's Note:

    The pesto and olive give the focaccia a very robust flavor. As a variation, omit the pesto and brush dough with olive oil, then sprinkle with snipped fresh basil and finely shredded parmesan cheese. This comes from my Better Homes and Garden Bread Machine Book.

      This bread came together nice and easy. I used my KitchenAid for mixing of the dough and let the bread rise for 45 min on the baking tray before placing in the oven. I reduced the oil to 2 tbsp, the amount of flour was spot on. I went with the olive oil / herb variation topping instead of the pesto. Made for ZWT 7 - by the Food.Commandoes

      I used 1 C whole wheat 2 C bread flour, subbed green olives for black (that's all I had) and didn't use the pesto topping and it turned out very good! We dipped it in balsamic n olive oil.

      This is a really wonderful bread! I used kalamata olives and homemade pesto. The olives gave it a wonderful color, almost like whole wheat bread. While it was baking, the whole house smelled like pesto, and I couldn't wait to try it. I think this would make a wonderful paninni sandwich, which I will have to try. Thanks for posting- this is a definite keeper!
