Barcelona's pastisseries don't serve only sweet things. Whatever the day or time of year, there will always be a few savory snacks to take away—usually a tasty flatbread, or coca, baked on the premises, with a topping of eggplant and bell peppers, onions and raisins, spinach and pine nuts, cured anchovies, or wild mushrooms and herbs. The coca is typically described as a Catalan version of pizza, with its base of thin, baked crust, though the topping rarely includes cheese and only occasionally features tomato. Sweet coques are also made for holidays and other celebrations. This recipe is a version of coca most often seen in Barcelona's pastry shops.

Serve with a smooth, fruity Rioja.

  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1 eggplant

  • For the dough:
  • 1 2⁄3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1⁄2 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1⁄2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 3⁄4 cup water

  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 12 black olives, pitted and coarsely
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 2 large, ripe tomatoes, cut into thin slices
  • 4 Tbs. olive oil

Wine Pairing

This pairs well with smooth, medium-bodied red wines like the Rosa Del Golfo Scaliere Negroamaro, Salento from our Wine Club.


Preheat an oven to 450°F.

Place the bell peppers and eggplant on a baking sheet and roast, turning several times to cook evenly, until the peppers are blistered and blackened all over and the skin of the eggplant is wrinkled and shriveled, about 45 minutes. Transfer the peppers and eggplant to a paper bag. Close the bag and set aside until cool enough to handle, about 15 minutes. Leave the oven on.

Peel the charred skins off the roasted vegetables. Slice each bell pepper in half lengthwise and discard the seeds, ribs and stems. Cut the peppers and eggplant into thin strips.

Meanwhile, make the dough: In a bowl, sift together the flour, salt and baking powder. Make a well in the flour and add the olive oil and egg yolk. Gradually add the water, mixing the wet ingredients into the flour little by little with a wooden spoon. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured board and knead until soft, smooth and elastic, about 1 minute. Form the dough into a ball and place in a large, lightly oiled bowl. Cover with a kitchen towel and let stand in a warm place until the dough puffs slightly, about 30 minutes.

In another large bowl, combine the eggplant and bell pepper strips with the garlic and olives, and season generously with salt and pepper.

Lightly oil a 12-by-9-inch rimmed baking sheet. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out the dough into a rectangle to fit the pan. Press into the prepared pan and trim away any excess dough.

Cover the dough base with the tomato slices. Drizzle 2 Tbs. of the olive oil over the tomato slices. Arrange the eggplant mixture evenly over the tomatoes and drizzle with the remaining oil.

Bake until the edges are beginning to brown, about 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly. Cut into squares and serve warm.
