Recipe testing can be stressful, expensive and very frustrating but when something comes together (be it the first time or the 50th time) there is no better feeling!
This was one of those rare occasions where it just worked on the first try and has worked perfectly twice since. I think that means I can declare this recipe “foolproof”?
I think I will also declare it my new favourite dinner because it really is so delicious, so easy to make and healthy too!
Taste-wise, this really hits the pizza spot. Texture-wise, it’s very close but isn’t quite a replacement for a wheat or gluten-free flour based pizza.
It’s a much softer dough. Still, it’s in no way less delicious! If you’re on a vegan & grain-free diet, this will definitely cure your pizza cravings :-)
The base of the pizza is a socca or “farinata” flatbread, made from chickpea flour.
As you can probably guess from the name, it originates from Italy and is made very simply by mixing chickpea / garzbonzo bean flour with water and a bit of olive oil, adding to a pan and baking at a high heat.
You can find chickpea flour at the supermarket in the world food aisle or in Asian markets, health food shops or online.
This socca pizza is:
- Vegetarian & vegan
- Gluten-free & grain-free
- High in plant-based protein
Super easy pizza sauce
