Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat a grill or grill pan.

  • Divide dough into 2 pieces. Flour a rolling pin and roll each piece into a rectangular shape about 12 inches long, 6 to 7 inches wide, and 1/4 inch thick.

  • Place one piece of dough on grill and cook until bottom is golden brown, about 2 minutes. Turn dough and continue cooking on opposite side until golden, about 2 minutes more. Transfer dough to a cutting board. Repeat process with remaining dough.

  • Let dough stand for 2 minutes before using a serrated knife to cut foccacina horizontally in half. Spread one half of each with garlic paste and sprinkle over rosemary. Place provolone on remaining halves and sprinkle with scallions. Sandwich halves together and wrap each sandwich tightly with foil. Grill, turning once, until sandwiches are hot and cheese is melted, 5 to 6 minutes.

  • Unwrap sandwiches and cut crosswise into 1 1/2-inch wide strips using a serrated knife. Serve immediately.

Made this with mozzarella cheese, sun dried tomatoes and pesto as the base. Came out great. serve with a salad and its a great summer meal. I can see making this anytime to go with pasta as a side or appetizer .Once you get the dough made you can add anything to this. Easy to make and alot more economical than buying a Focaccina. Thanks Mario

Hello! I just saw the video and at this time it played perfect. I have to say that at the beginning of my internet recipe search sesion(laughs) I couldn't see it either, so I went to the archive, did some searching and found the show: April 30,2008: Mario Batali. It sure is a good and easy recipe. I sure enjoyed it.
