 I have definitely been feeling a little off of my game lately. I have had some serious epic FAILS go on in the kitchen over the last couple of weeks. There have been mishaps from everything like mashed potatoes (which came out like glue), soup which wasn't soupy at all (damn noodles), and banana bread that tricked me into thinking it was cooked (but just when I turned my back, the gooey, uncooked middle ended up all over my counters and floor!) So after all of this mishaps I have been feeling a little down about actually cooking anything. 

 
However, we all know how I am a sucker for anything my husband asks for. He and I saw this focaccia bread recipe that looked so delicious and easy, he actually asked me to try to make it...so of course, I had to give it a try! 
 
I think we were both glad that I gave it a try, and hopefully my bad luck in the kitchen is all gone now. This bread was AMAZING!! It was super simple to make, and the end result was super tasty! All you need is some of your favorite veggies and cheese, some good olive oil, and some pre-made pizza dough, such as Pilsbury. I ended up using mozzarella, thinly sliced onions, roasted red peppers, tomatoes, and sliced mushrooms. 
 
What you want to do is unwrap the pizza dough and put it onto a baking sheet. Brush one half (not the long way) of the pizza dough with olive oil, then top with half of your toppings and cheese. Fold the non brushed side of the dough over, and make sure to crimp the edges together. Then, brush the top of the dough with a little more olive oil and top with remaining ingredients and cheese. I also added a little parsley, basil and garlic powder to the top of the bread. Then pop the bread into the oven at 400 for 15-20 mins. 

It is seriously that simple and delicious!
