Schiacciata is a classic Tuscan bread that is made with simple ingredients. Historically, women in Italy bake this bread for the miners to bring as their meals. It is a good source of energy and easy to preserve.
To make this Italian bread, you need flour, yeast, olive oil, and salt.
Roll the dough into a ball and smash it so it becomes flat.
Form a rectangle or oval shape and make dimples on the flattened surface by pressing your fingers all over the dough.
Drizzle it with olive oil and sprinkle with salt.
Then let the bread rests with a cover before baking in the oven.
