Inside Scoop: A delicious grain-free flatbread (socca) that takes 10 minutes of prep, and only contains 5 ingredients.
At first we didn’t think that putting together recipes for the N5Diet was going to be that easy, considering we had to make sure they all were created in 5 ingredients or less.
That is, until we really started to experiment with food at its very core. Flours, veggies, fruits, herbs, meats, and grains, this is food at its very core. And, it has become beyond amazing just how creative you can get with 5 ingredients.
We also wanted to provide bread options for those who are looking to keep it grain or gluten-free, or have serious digestive issues (just as Jenni does). Recipes that won’t make you feel bloated, that are high in fiber, high in protein, and use cheap flours that are easy to play with.
When Grain-Free Flatbread Rules The World
One of our favourite recipes (of all time) is this simple 10 Minute Garlic & Herbed Grain-Free Flatbread. A recipe that’s exclusive to the N5Diet, but also something that we loved so much (who doesn’t love a variety of topping options), that we just had to publish it.
Not only that, but this grain-free flatbread is an N5Diet fan favourite, and we find that most people who have done the N5Diet end up sending us photos of this flatbread being cooked as a pizza base, or a bruschetta, or just a flatbread that has veggies and feta on top – so simple, so many different grain-free flatbread topping options, and so unbelievably easy to make.
“I loved the socca flatbread, it was enough for me and my son to share. I put organic pizza sauce and old cheddar on his half, and goat cheese on mine”

My daughter absolutely loves it as a pizza base as well, so I usually make an easy 5 minute pizza sauce, and if you’re looking for other flatbread options but don’t have issues with your gut, you’ve got to test out this Veggie Loaded Spelt Flatbread, where you can also find the recipe for a quick pizza sauce.
