Luke 4:4 And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.

According to Wikipedia Focaccia is: “Focaccia (Italian pronunciation: [foˈkaːtʃa]) is a flat oven-baked Italian bread which may be topped with herbs or other ingredients. Focaccia is related to pizza, but not considered to be the same. Focaccia is quite popular in Italy and is usually seasoned with Olive Oil and sometimes herbs. However, by far the most typical focaccia is simply baked dough topped with olive oil and a simple herb like rosemary or sage and salted.”
