Socca Pizza Inspired by the Cuisine of Nice, France
Socca Pizza Base
Socca is a traditional Niçoise street food made with chickpea flour and cooked in a very hot cast iron pan. In Italy, it is called farinata. Not quite a pancake, not exactly a crepe, socca is socca. If you love socca it is one of those flavours that will transport you back to the French Riviera, if only while the pizza lasts…
Jackie is a fan of socca, a dish she discovered in the 1990s while in Nice. The gluten-free chickpea flour has a slightly nutty flavour. She has been experimenting with the socca recipe for a while now and has perfected the ingredients to create a savoury and delicious pizza. The recipe follows.
