‘Cocas’ are pizza-like pastries typical from Catalonia. There are various ways that they can be enjoyed, both sweet and savoury and in both open and closed formats but with the main ingredient being a dough base that is then garnished with different toppings. Cocas are different from pizzas in regards to their typical shape as well as when it comes to toppings: cheese is hardly ever used. They are also traditionally served at room temperature as opposed to hot like pizzas. For toppings, this recipe uses another traditional Catalonian dish – Escalivada – which is a mixture of fire-roasted red peppers, aubergines and onions. To complement the escalivada we’ve also added sardines and anchovies. This is a great summertime dish as it is traditionally enjoyed cold, so its ideal for taking on picnics or for any impromptu al fresco dining!
