Jamie Nisbet spent a year living in Florence, Italy, and one of her favorite foods from the region is schiacciata bread. On her blog, she writes:

It is a flat bread, whose name is derived from a verb meaning “crushed.” The bread is typically oiled and salted, but can be made into several different varieties and tastes. It can be simple with only the oil or have different toppings like olives or onions. It can also be made into a dessert like the schiacciata all’uva (with grapes), which is made around the grape harvest.

She found a good, authentic recipe in Italian, translated it , converted the measurements, and made her own version, which she kindly shared with us. Just reading it is making me hungry. Thank, Jamie!
