In a bowl mix the yeast with the tempered water, add oil, progressively add the flour until a smooth mass, let stand in a warm place while you prepare the vegetables.

Clean and cut the spinach and green onion, chop parsley, mix vegetables in a bowl, season with salt, paprika and a drizzle of olive oil. Cut the tomato into slices and set aside.

Roll out the dough on a baking tray greased with oil, cover with vegetable mixture, distribute sardines and tomato slices over vegetables.

Bake at 170 about 25 minutes, until the dough is ready.

For the vegetables do not burn you can cover the “coca” with foil and uncover shortly before finishing the cooking.
