BBQ Plank Focaccia

Facaccia Bread

Although not common, it is possible to cook bread on a plank. A thin-style bread, such as focaccia, is a good option that allows it to cook all the way through.

Although normally a yeast bread, this version is simplified for a camp setting. With bread it is even more important that the plank is preheated, otherwise, the base can remain uncooked while the top is overcooked.

This recipe has a basic and fairly traditional focaccia topping of rosemary, olive oil, and flaked salt. You can switch it up with options such as olives, sun-dried tomatoes, or garlic.
