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.

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.
