Tips

Expert Tips

Focaccia, an Italian bread shaped into a large, flat round, is often drizzled with olive oil and topped with Parmesan cheese before baking.

Look for focaccia in the bakery, deli or frozen-food section of the grocery store.

Using already-shredded mozzarella cheese is certainly easy. For slightly different Italian flavor, shred provolone cheese, which has a slightly smoky flavor, or Fontina cheese, which has a subtle nutty flavor.
