Rosemary Focaccia

This is my version of Macaroni Grills rosemary bread. This is a very easy to make bread that has brought me rave reviews with anyone who has made or tasted it. The secret is the sea salt and garlic powder mixture. Dipping the fresh hot bread in a good olive oil is a must.

1-1/2 tsp salt
1-1/2 tsp sugar
