I am on a serious flatbread and pizza binge right now you guys.
But not your ordinary flour pizza with tomato sauce and cheese. More like fancy flatbreads made out of fun ingredients like this socca chick pea flatbread with crunchy green salad.
I started using chickpea flour a couple weeks ago when I made that Chickpea Flour Carrot Zucchini Bread and seriously am obsessed. It is so versatile to use for flour and adds a ton more protein and fiber than others. I also love the subtle taste of it and how it can be used for sweet or savory recipes.
This socca bread is made out of just a few ingredients and the toppings are SO GOOD. I used an almond milk cheese from grocery store and made a crunchy green salad with Organic Girl’s new butter lettuce from their True Heart’s line. They just launched the new line and it is delicious. I love using butter lettuce in my salads, on sandwiches, anything! It adds the perfect crunch and green nutrient boost to this recipe.
