Is focaccia just pizza dough?

What is special about focaccia bread?
Just like pizza dough, ACE Bakery® focaccia is made with flour, oil, water, yeast and salt. But, focaccia is made with more yeast than pizza dough, which allows it to rise more and become a fluffier and more bread-like loaf. Focaccias are also usually punctured before baking, which preserves more moisture.

How do you make Jamie Oliver focaccia?
Should focaccia be thick or thin?
As a general rule of thumb, a classic Italian-style pizza crust will be less than half an inch thick while most focaccia will be at least three quarters of an inch thick. Also, focaccia is most commonly served at room temperature — though you can also eat focaccia bread cold or toasted.
Why are dimples made in focaccia bread?
A well-proofed dough will have lots of air bubbles and rises quickly; that massaging adds dimples that keep your focaccia flat, as it should be. Also, those dimples hold the olive oil coating and help it soak into the dough, which gives your finished bread that crisp and golden crust.
What is the difference between bruschetta and focaccia?
Focaccia is more traditionally served as the “side dish” sort of bread — usually placed directly on the tablecloth or napkin, incidentally — while bruschetta and crostini (and pizza) are primi piatti (first plates) or appetizers, if not light meals, and are served on plates.
Why is my focaccia not fluffy?
Make sure the yeast is bubbling and foamy before you add it to the dry ingredients. If it doesn’t foam after a few minutes, pour it out and start with fresh yeast. It may seem like a lot of olive oil in the pan and poured over the dough, but never fear!
Why is focaccia flat?
Dough not kneaded long enough
Not kneading the dough long enough will cause your focaccia to be flat and dense when you bake it. This kneading process develops the gluten structure. It will make the dough more soft and elastic.
