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.

Ingredients:

  • Crust: 1/2 cup Bush’s Garbanzo Beans, drained
  • 1 c. chickpea flour
  • 1 c. water
  • 1/8 cup avocado oil plus extra to coat
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 3/4 cup packed parsley
  • Toppings:
  • 1/4 cup pesto
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan

  • Kalamata olives
  • Mint
  • Basil

Directions:

  1. In a blender, combine all crust ingredients, and blend until smooth and a vibrant green.
  2. Coat a medium-sized skillet with oil, then pour in batter. Broil at 450 for 3-4 minutes. Remove pan from oven, carefully flip the pizza, then return to broiler for additional 3-4 minutes. Remove from oven, then spread pesto—leaving about an inch of crust.
  3. Top with artichoke, olives, tomato, shaved parmesan, and any other desired toppings. Place on a lower rack and broil for about 3-4 minutes, until cheese browns slightly.
  4. Remove from oven and garnish with lemon zest, pepper, and basil. Serve warm.

  1. I love Socca! Wish I could go to France and try it there. I never thought of adding other things to it, but I bet the parsley is delicious!

  2. Where do you get chickpea flour??

    • You can buy chickpea or garbanzo flour almost anywhere (Bob’s Red Mill or King Arthur brands are 2). You can even order it on Amazon! :)

  3. Your kitchen is fabulous!! A wonderful spot to gather. I love socca and adding pesto was genius! And adding toppings? YUM!

  4. Yum! Sounds great. I so agree that if I have my dream home (which I don’t either) but it’s not a place that cozy, loving, inviting, than it’s not worth it. I want my home to welcome people, to create an atmosphere where they can be themselves and I think that’s created not even by what is in the home, but how we make the home feel.

  5. Goodness gracious the color alone looks scrumptious!

  6. what a colorful pizza with pest too, love that, but really nice that you use chickpea flour rand garbanzo beans for the crust, wow, think that’s a good for bad carb swap too, very clever! Thank you!
