abundantly oil the first pan lay the dough turning it over (so as to cover both sides with oil), roll it out and sink your fingers to create hollows, break the tomatoes with your hands (let the juice and seeds fall on the surface) and arrange the cherry tomatoes facing down, add another drizzle of oil then the salt and finally the oregano, let it rise for about 30-40 minutes or more (depending on whether you like it higher or lower, I like the focaccia low so 30 minutes was enough)
