Garlic Bread Recipe That Grows Like a Balloon | Soft and Fluffy Garlic Focaccia

I made Italian pre-dinner bread, focaccia. You can make it without toppings, or you can taste it with various toppings. I made focaccia with garlic and herb flavor. It is made with no dough without kneading, but it has a soft and chewy texture. I really like the feel when I make dimples in the dough. Please make it yourself too.
