The name Coca de trampó comes from the Mallorcan word trempar, which means “to dress” for dressing. It is a fresh salad that can accompany any dish. In this case, tomato, green bell pepper, and onion comprise the combination of veggies on top of the coca or flatbread.

This is often called a Spanish pizza recipe, but what does coca dough have to do with pizza dough? Well, there are only two different ingredients: lard and egg. The rest of the ingredients are the same and the elaboration is similar. Perhaps the pizza is even more elaborate?

This Majorcan vegetable flatbread is an iconic on-the-go snack in Mallorca and around the Balearic Islands, which also includes Menorca, Ibiza, and Formentera.
