With SFIZIO CROCK, it is possible to personalize your own roman focaccia. White bread flour can be replaced either by durum wheat flour or by whole wheat flour, using the same recipe, or you can choose to replace it with one of our bread mixes such as KORN FIT, CURCUBREAD, VITAMAIS, GRAN RUSTICO and GRAN MEDITERRANEO, but in this case you have to add just 10g of salt instead of 30g.
