Coca, Vegetarian

I am really happy to be sharing this recipe, it reminds me of all the holidays I had when I was younger in the south of France. I remember that it would be one of the first things I wanted, going to be the bakery and buy this awesome salty pastry called coca! Had them almost daily as an appetizer for lunch or dinner.

Before you start, in this recipe you will need to remove the bell pepper skin. To do that, you need to use your oven on the grill position. Put your bell peppers in the oven for 20 minutes or so and turn them every 5 minutes. Then use a plastic bag and put them inside right after the oven, close it and let them cool off. The skin will peel off easy peasy!


  • 250 g Flour
  • 4 cl Olive oil
  • 10 cl Water
  • 2 Bell peppers (1 green and 1 red)
  • 3 Tomato, peeled and seeded 
  • 1 Onion
  • 1 Egg yolk
  • Salt & pepper 
  • 10 cl Olive oil


  1. Make the dough by mixing the flour, salt, water and olive oil. If the dough is too dry, you can add a little extra water. Let it sit for -at least- 30 minutes.
  2. Cut the peppers into strips and the tomatoes into cubes. Dice the onion.
  3. Sauté the onion over low heat in olive oil. Add the peppers, tomatoes, salt, pepper and let it cook for 30 minutes or more.
  4. Flatten the dough with a roll. Cut little circles out of the dough -around 10 cm, I used a big mug to make the circles-. Add 2 tablespoons of the mixture on half of the dough and fold the other half over. Use a fork to seal the dough together. With a brush -or a fork-, brush the dough with egg yolk.
  5. Bake 20 minutes at 160C.

My mum found a recipe on a French blog, she made it and OHMYGOD it was so good I had to make it at home and share it. If you want to check the recipe -it is in French-, you can click here.
