Socca pizza!!

Never heard of it? Neither had I until I found the Pure2Raw blog. Michelle and Lori are kind of obsessed with socca. They even have a socca tribute on their blog. check it out here.

 

As soon as I read about socca on the Pure2Raw blog, I knew it was a recipe I had to try. What I like about this recipe is that it is really simple to make, uses minimal ingredients, and is so versatile. This recipe is easily adaptable to be sweet or savory and can be customized in an infinite amount of ways. The only specialty ingredient that is called for is Garbanzo bean flour, which can be found at your local health food store and is actually very cheap!

 

So I immediately put this on my list of “recipes I must try soon!” and, of course, forgot about it! Then I saw this post on The Edible Perspective and thought “What a perfect way to try my first Socca! Make a Pizza!” So I went to the store bought some garbanzo bean flour and made my first socca!

This is my Socca Crust fresh out of the oven! I decided to top my socca pizza with homemade raw pesto, Field Roast sausage, and sun-dried tomatoes.

The result? YUM! Eddie just thought is was okay. He thought it was a bit bland and a little too dry. Personally, I loved the texture. It was a bit bland, but I did that on purpose. I wanted the toppings to really stand out on my pizza, not be overshadowed by the crust. Like I mentioned above, this recipe is so customizable, so you can easily add herbs and spices to make the crust more tasty!

 

I cannot wait to make socca again. And with how easy it is, I will probably make it again soon! Next time I am going to try a breakfast socca topped with bananas, almond butter, coconut, and some maple syrup! How amazing does that sound?!!
