Focaccia flop or not?

Now, I’m not sure if this was a complete flop … I mean … the focaccia’s were edible and they looked good …
Perhaps the reason why I would deem these not a complete success stems from the fact that I used bread flour as opposed to normal, baking flour and the dough was somewhat heavier than I think it should’ve been. Also, I didn’t have the full amount of yeast as per the recipe – by a milligram of a teaspoon! Not exactly grounds for an automatic fail …
And perhaps ‘flop’ is too strong a word because it wasn’t a complete flop … merely heavier than what a focaccia should be.
BUT, if you look at my photo above – and as my brother would proudly point out – my focaccia’s did come out looking very close to the original photo in Baked and Delicious, which is where I got the recipe from.
And they tasted yummy warmed up on the braai along with the garlic bread.
The ‘flop’ just became a ‘win’.
