This recipe is super simple, too. It seems like it might take a while because you need to let it sit for 30 minutes, but if you’re making a meal, you can use that time to prep or cook other components! All you do after combining the ingredients is broil it for five minutes and bake for another 8-10 minutes. It comes together so easily and goes well with so many different things. We like to cut ours into wedges and drizzle with extra olive oil after it’s done!
A lot of people have used socca as a pizza base. You can top it with whatever you’d like, just like a normal pizza! However, some common themes include Mediterranean toppings such as red onions, sardines, and olives. But feel free to get creative with it! Or, check out this link for some other socca pizza ideas. Another way to use the socca batter is to make mini socca “pancakes,” making them on the stovetop rather than just one large one in the oven. Similarly, I have seen people use smaller socca circles as taco shells. Finally… are you take pancake or team waffle? Because you can also turn this batter into waffles! Simply plop a bit into a waffle-maker, just as you would with pancake batter!
