Biscuit Mini Focaccia is a super easy way to add a flavorful bread to an Italian meal. Biscuit Focaccia is made with canned biscuits, rolled out thin and topped with a homemade basil pesto, pine nuts and Parmesan cheese.
If you are in a time crunch, you could use prepared pesto to make the recipe.
Now mind you, these don’t taste anything like real focaccia. But the canned biscuits have a wonderful buttery taste that is divine when topped with so much flavor.
And speaking of real focaccia, it has been years since I’ve made it and last time I did, I really wasn’t satisfied with it. But I just signed up for Craftsy’s Meredith Deeds’ Focaccia & Flatbreads From Around the World class so hopefully there’s lots of super yummy homemade focaccia in my future.
But in the mean time, I’ll be happy eating these super easy mini focaccia rounds made out of biscuits.
They taste great paired with just about anything. Or even just eaten on their own!
