Easy Focaccia Bread

This should be called Super Easy Focaccia but I think I over-use the word super. Since Focaccia dough is similar to pizza dough, the obvious way to make this an easy recipe is to use frozen store bought pizza dough. So this is for my friends who say they love homemade bread but wouldn’t make it.

Garlic Naan Bread is pretty easy to make actually and doesn’t require yeast so it’s possible you have all the ingredients you need right now. Tawa Naan is traditional naan that is not cooked in a tandoor which is a hot clay oven.
