Today I would like to purpose to you one of the most famous ligurian dishes, the Cheese Focaccia of Recco – Focaccia al formaggio di Recco.

The town of Recco, in the Riviera di Levante, is famous for this gastronomic dish and every year the city houses the festival dedicated to this deliciousness.

Cheese focaccia recipe


Kg. 1 flour,
dl. 1 olive oil,
dl. 5 of water,
kg. 2 of crescenza (cheese),


Below I posted a link with a video found on YouTube where you can see how Cheese Focaccia is prepared.

Take a dough mixing the flour and water and roll out two thin layers. Place one of the layers in a baking tray greased with oil and dot with the cheese chopped into small pieces and cover with the other layer.

Then, perforate the surface with a fork to allow the steam to escape. Close the edges using a roller, sprinkle with oil and then with a pinch of salt.

Finally, cook in a hot oven till the focaccia becomes brown and serve immediately.
