Squash Blossom Focaccia
This Squash Blossom Focaccia is inspired by my travels in Italy. Prior to my Italian adventure, I thought the only way to cook squash blossoms was to stuff them with cheese and fry them but I was pleasantly surprised when I tasted a focaccia bread with squash blossoms on top.
This recipe is so simple to make. I use store bought dough which cuts the prep time considerably. Start by pressing and stretching the dough into a baking pan. If the dough springs back, leave it to rest for about 10 minutes and stretch again. Bake for 8 minutes before topping with ricotta cheese, Parmesan and squash blossoms. Return to the oven and bake for 10 more minutes.
