Socca Pizza For Mother's Day
***Caitlin posted on my seasonal food challenge on Friday if your interested on an update.***

This weekend went by extremely quickly. We spent an incredible weekend with our friends just being crazy and having fun. Saturday was free comic book day, so the studio the illustrator is in spent the day at a local comic book shop. All the spouses and kids came too. It was beautiful outside so we hung out the whole time outside chatting. Then we made our way to where the evening festivities took place. We didn't get home until 3:30am...YIKES! Did I mention I'm getting too old for that? It always seems like a good idea at the time, but the next day ya kind of regret that decision. I'm always the designated driver (by choice), so I loaded up on some coffee at the end of the night. I was surprised, but I was actually pretty awake at that time. It was such a great night!

Since I drove some of our out of town friends from the party spot to our house, we had brunch back over at the party house Sunday morning. There was a feast of amazingness served up and then we all went our separate ways. I spent the entire weekend hanging with my men and was an incredible weekend!

Last night, since it was my night, I really wanted pizza. So, in an effort to make things easier, I decided on socca pizza. I realized, I never share my version of socca on here or how I make easy individual flatbread pizzas. This comes together in literally 20 minutes and it's so good!

If you love super thin crust pizza, you'll love this! I bake them individually in my 9 inch bread pans. This makes it really easy to make multiple flavors or just one. These freeze amazingly well too so you can really have pizza anytime. I also ate one toasted up with nothing on it last night. In my opinion, there's nothing the chickpea can't do.

Socca Flatbread
(makes one)

1/2 cup chickpea (garbanzo bean) flour (I used Bob's Red Mill)
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp garlic powder (optional)
1/8 tsp pepper
1/2 cup warm water

Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.

Mix all the ingredients together and pour into a 9 inch bread pan coated with olive oil (I use the olive oil spray). Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from pan.

To make them into pizza, take them out of the pans, place on a baking sheet (I lined mine with parchment). Put toppings on the socca. Bake for 10 minutes or until the toppings are done to your liking. 

This week is going to be crazy! I hope everyone has a great one!
