Socca Pizza

Caramelized Onion, Wilted Greens, and Honeyed Goat Cheese Socca Pizza

A chewy socca pizza crust, topped with tangy and sweet goat cheese, caramelized onions, and wilted greens

Happy Tuesday!

I hope you all had a great weekend (and a great Labor Day for all of my friends in the states)! We had a pretty low key weekend with some unexpected surprises, like a broken garage door, a car that needed a new starter and battery. 🙁  When it rains, it pours, right? C’est La Vie!

But, I also got in some good sweat sessions, we spent some time together as a family, and we ate some delicious food. Like this pizza!

Socca Pizza


I know it’s been a few weeks since I’ve shared a recipe, but this one was so good that I couldn’t keep it to myself. 

Socca pizzas have been making a regular appearance into my weekly meal plan. They are quick and easy to put together and require only a few ingredients. We vary the toppings based on what we happen to have on hand. This past week, we were lucky enough to have some Trader Joe’s honeyed chevre.

This recipe is so easy! Just mix up the socca pizza ‘dough’, bake it in the oven, caramelize some onion and garlic, wilt some greens.
