Although there are several variations on formulas for the focaccia, Brickie hit a pretty good note on the subject. It's really just a thick pizza. I often take my leftover pizza dough and put it back into the refrigerator until my oven has dropped into the 500-525F range. I gather up my balls of dough (about 30-35 oz for a half sheet pan of focaccia) out of the refrig, combine them and let them warm as with pizza. Once the dough has warmed a bit, I stretch, press, and pull it out into the half sheet pan. Let it rise for an hour or two then give it the finger presses, dose it with herbs, EVOO, kosher salt, & pepper. I put the sheet pan in the oven at about 500F and plan on a bake of 15-20 minutes. I watch it closely and turn the pan around after about 10 minutes. Once you get a good brown on top, it's done...bring it out & let it cool a bit before cutting & serving (I use a pizza cutter on it.)

Hope that helps a bit.

I would have it as a wetter dough than a pizza
Let it rise and a poke your fingers into it to give it the right look

Focaccia from Genoa ( focaccia alla genovese ) recipe - YouTube

I used to go to a pizza shop in Melbourne that basically cooked 2 very thin pizzas together and had garlic oil and a little parmessan/mozzarella in between it was excellent and they called it a focaccia .
The ones I had in Genoa was very similar to that too but the pastry was almost a flaky pastry and there was 4 cheeses in it (it was excellent)
