Expert Tips

Look for flat, round Italian focaccia loaves in the bakery or deli department of most large grocery stores. Before this delicious bread is baked, the baker uses his thumb to dimple the dough, then seasons it.

Pick up potato salad at the deli to serve with wedges of this hearty sandwich.
