Socca Pizza

I recently picked up Gwyneth Paltrow’s new cookbook It’s All Easy Cookbook.  It truly is easy and delicious.  Click on Goop for a link to her blog.

Socca pizza is a simple chickpea pancake that literally takes minutes to make.  It’s tasty, gluten-free, and has only 3 ingredients.  I topped it with raw summer veggies and had a fresh, flavorful dinner in 10 minutes.  Gotta’ love that!

Notes

Source (Who needs to reinvent the wheel…a great recipe is a great recipe!): Inspired by Gwyneth Paltrow.

Short Cut: Make ahead of time and store in the refrigerator. Reheat in oven or microwave.

Think Out of the Ice Box: Add a little sriracha on top to give it a kick.
