Socca Bread Recipe

If you're anything like me, you're always on the lookout for a great way to get a sauce/dip/spread into your mouth.

My go-to food for this job is socca bread- a simple, gluten-free, versatile and delicious flatbread!

Traditionally found in the South of France, socca bread is great served with dips, cheeses, and as a base for pizza!

The fun thing about this bread is it's versatility- you can add whatever spices go with what you're making.

Ex: Pizza night? Why not add some parsley and basil. Serving with cheese? Perhaps a teaspoon of rosemary would do the trick! And if you don’t want to add anything- don’t worry. The basic recipe with salt and pepper is just great.
