Gluten-free vegan avocado cauliflower socca pizza recipe.

Last night I was over at Lori’s new place helping with moving furniture around, organizing, cleaning, and other work.

From all that work I started to have a craving for pizza. —> not sure why, just did

Lori mentioned she had some garbanzo bean flour and buckwheat groats that we could use.

It has been a long time since we have made socca, and looks like we still got the touch.

As it came out perfect!

As our socca pizza crust cooled, we decided to make our creamy cauliflower as our base sauce. Then finished off the pizza with a little arugula, sliced zucchini and our favorite creamy avocado sauce.
Perfectly baked socca pizza crust. We used a combo of garbanzo bean flour and buckwheat groats as we wanted a neutral, simple flavor gluten-free crust!
As the socca crust baked, we made our homemade cauliflower sauce and creamy avocado sauce. Or you can use any sauce of your liking.

Top your socca pizza crust with your toppings and sauce, and enjoy!

A healthy and very easy pizza recipe using socca as the crust. Gluten-free vegan avocado cauliflower pizza. Pizza crust made from buckwheat flour and garbanzo bean flour.


  • 3/4 cup garbanzo bean flour (we used Bob’s Red Mill brand)
  • 1/2 cup buckwheat flour (made from raw buckwheat groats, ground in Vita-Mix till flour texture)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon parsley flakes (optional)
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons olive oil or coconut oil** for the pan


  1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Make your buckwheat flour. (Place buckwheat groats into Vita-Mix or food processor and blend till you get a flour like texture)
  3. You can use more garbanzo bean flour or another flour of choice if you would like.
  4. Place all dry ingredients into a large bowl and mix together.
  5. Then add in your 1 1/4 cups water and stir til combined.
  6. Set aside.
  7. Grab a 10 inch pan (a 12 inch pan would work too, just will be a thinner crust pizza base) place your olive oil into pan and place into hot oven.
  8. Let the oil warm-up for about 1-2 minutes.
  9. Remove from oven and pour your pizza socca batter into hot oiled pan.
  10. Place back into hot oven and bake for about 30-40 minutes.
  11. Let cool a little before flipping out of pan.
  12. Then top with your toppings and sauce of choice.
  13. We topped our simple socca pizza with our cauliflower sauce, arugula, zucchini slices, and creamy avocado sauce.

Guess you can say we had ‘green’ on our minds, as this dinner had no other color but green. Adding in some red tomatoes would have been a nice visual appeal. Maybe next time.

Now I know this pizza is not like a typical pizza, but that is ok. I really did not miss the cheese as the two sauces were a perfect touch in my opinion. My pizza craving has been satisfied! Sometimes you just have to be a little creative in the kitchen to make something amazing even if it is a little different.

Twins Question: Do you like making homemade sauces? Any favorites sauces you would like to share?

Lori and I love making homemade sauces as they usually can be whipped up in minutes.

till next time,

  5. I love the crust recipe!!! Vegan & gluten free? I’m in!
    Do you think it would also work as pie crust if I baked it in pie pan?
    Oh, and if it’s okay, can I request a vegan soy free quiche recipe one day? Cuz I know you guys’ recipes never fail 😉

    1. Stephanie you can try it in a pie crust, but the batter is runny so it would form a pie shape.

  6. I don’t experiment too often with sauces or creams but my latest bizarre concoction was pumpkin puree, hazelnuts, plain greek yogurt with a few strawberries and an avocado blended in the Vitamix. It comes out like a custard and actually tasted surprisingly good on the pumpkin socca you made! I also use that “custard” with protein powder to make a very unconventional yet yummy shake.
