    Have you ever heard of socca? Trust us; it's not nearly as intimidating as it sounds. A nutritious and hearty combination of bread and pizza, we're constantly convincing our friends to try this easy recipe when they're bored or feeling uninspired in the kitchen. Topped with a light arugula salad and enjoyed fresh from the oven, it's the perfect weeknight meal that's light enough to enjoy in the summer, but hearty enough for winter indulging. Even better? The ingredients are crazy affordable! Happy cooking!
