SOCCA CRUST WITH SWISS CHARD, CHORIZO, AND EGG

Socca is a kind of crepe made with chickpea flour. It makes a delightfully delicate pizza crust. Try adding chopped herbs or spices to the batter before baking. It’s an Italian tradition to crack an egg onto a pizza and bake until it is just slightly set. When you cut into the pizza, the liquid yolk runs onto the crust and adds to the flavor.

Savory and satisfying, pissaladière is a classic southern French pizzalike tart made with caramelized onions, garlic, anchovies, olives — and no cheese! We throw mushrooms into the mix here. This hearty, simple crust is terrific with full-flavored toppings.
Mochi Crust
By Betsy Nelson
Traditional mochi, which is glutinous rice, creates a thick crust that is crunchy on the outside and gooey on the inside. (This preparation makes it thin and crispy.) Adding pears to a pizza may seem unusual, but the fruit’s sweetness pairs wonderfully with the salty ham. Avoid overloading the delicate mochi crust.
