Friends, do you live in your dream home? As much as I love our little mountain home, it’s not my dream home by any means. But guess what? It has everything I need, and I’m truly grateful for it.

Pesto Socca Pizza

My kitchen gets used a lot. A LOT. And I love the openness and counter space. Recently my daughter and I whipped up a new recipe: Parsley Infused Pesto Socca Pizza.

BEST Parsley Infused Pesto Socca Pizza

What is socca pizza?

Socca pizza—farinata or socca bread–is a flatbread or gluten-free chickpea crust pizza.

It’s made with simple ingredients, garbanzo beans (chickpeas) flour, olive oil, water and salt. You can buy chickpea or garbanzo flour almost anywhere (Bob’s Red Mill or King Arthur are 2 brands). You can even order it on Amazon! :)

Easy Parsley Infused Pesto Socca Pizza

I can honestly say that I do love our home. It’s been such a gift and blessing to our family these last 2 years! With all its imperfections, original squeaky floors, quirks (thank goodness we got rid of the high tank toilets), with no A/C–it’s been a fun fixer upper project.

One of the best compliments I have received was a guest telling me, “I love to come to your house. It’s so cozy and it feels so peaceful! And I love that it’s filled with happiness and love.”

That truly warmed my heart.

Creating a lovely atmosphere (never perfect), even when it’s not in our “dream” place, reminds us that inviting people in is more about the guests than our surroundings.

But I do want my guests to have their tummies filled up as well as their hearts, so today I think you’ll love this healthy, comfort dish: Parsley Infused Socca Pesto Pizza.

Of course the crust made with garbanzo beans (or chickpeas) is fantastic, but the toppings? Be still, my heart. :)

  • 1 cup chickpea flour
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/8 cup avocado oil plus extra to coat
  • 1 tsp. salt
