“This is from "Quick & Simple" by James Barber and it sure is! I usually make it in a round pie tin, not the baking sheet he recommends. I don't add the black olives because I don't care for them. This was titled as just a focaccia but after PAC with Dwynnie reviewing my recipe she mentioned that it has a bit of a biscut type texture so we came up with a new name. Enjoy!”
