Socca flatbread with Pea Pesto

I’m not exactly sure what to call this. Maybe a chickpeazza? Because it’s made with chickpea flour and just a few other ingredients. Technically, it’s called socca but whatever you want to call it, it’s certainly a soccaulent way to start your day. Or end your day. Or have in the middle of your day. The base provides the perfect vehicle for any meal, any time, any where. Recipe below!
