    What is Grape Schiacciata I hear you ask? I asked myself the same thing when I came across it in a bakery when I travelled through Tuscany a number of years ago. Well, schiacciata is a flatbread from Tuscany which is very similar to focaccia. In fact, in some areas of Tuscany the words schiacciata and focaccia are interchangeable.

    The word schiacciata can be translated as “squashed”or “crushed” in English which I really like! It can be savory or sweet. In this recipe, I combine flour, water, yeast, olive oil and sugar to make a dough. I then add black grapes and rosemary and fennel seeds to flavor the dough.

    To make Grape Schiacciata, you will need the following ingredients:

    With your hands, flatten the dough into a disk onto a piece of parchment paper. Spread ¾ of the grapes onto the dough, and fold the disk repeatedly until the grapes are distributed evenly through the dough. Do this as gently as possible to avoid crushing the grapes too much.
