Nizza Pizza
Socca, a southern-French crepe made of chickpea flour, is the signature snack of Nice. Top it with olive relish, peppers, aioli, hummus and ribbons of flavorful Denver Steak—one of the many new beef value cuts—and turn a humble pancake into a pizza with high-steaks profit power.
Yield: 24 servings
Whisk together flours and salt; whisk in water until smooth. Whisk in olive oil just until combined. Let stand at least 1 hour. Just before using, whisk gently and thin with additional water, if necessary, for light cream consistency.

Heat 1/2 Tbsp canola oil in 12-inch nonstick sauté pan over medium-high heat until hot. Add 3/4 cup batter, swirling pan to form an even Socca. Cook 4 to 5 minutes or until browned on bottom; turn Socca and cook 3 to 4 minutes or until cooked through and browned on second side. Repeat with remaining batter and oil to make 24 pancakes. Stack between layers of parchment paper.
