This has got to be the easiest pizza crust ever, and it’s gluten free! It’s based on a traditional french flat-bread called socca that’s made from chickpea flour. Although it wasn’t really a traditional pizza crust, it wasn’t meant to be, and it was delicious. Even my mom (a huge bread-lover who says she “doesn’t like grains”) loved it and said it filled her up. I am definitely planning on making this again soon!
To make the pizza:
1 1/4 cups chickpea flour
1 cup water
slightly more than 1 tbsp. olive oil
a pinch of salt
optional additional herbs (oregano, basil, rosemary, thyme)
Anything you want! I made it with pesto, spinach, mushrooms, mozarella and goat cheese, but you can add your favorite pizza toppings.
- Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl.
- Let it sit out for at least 30 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 400 F and oil a 9-inch pan or cast-iron skillet. Put the pan in the oven to let it warm up.
- Pour the batter into the pan and bake for approximately 35 minutes.
- Put on your pizza toppings, then put back in the oven for 1-2 minutes under the broiler to melt the cheese, or bake it for 5-8 more minutes.
