| Chickpea Flour Pizza Crust |
This recipe was created while I was visiting my parents' house and we were craving pizza for dinner. Apparently when my Mom bought my chickpea flour (the one from my brownies recipe) she also bought herself the exact same kind, bonus!
We were curious if it was possible to make a pizza crust from the chickpea flour and through a little trial and error, this recipe worked out quite well!
When topping your pizza, feel free to get as creative or as plain as you'd like! On my pizza I used kale, olives, fresh basil, and tomatoes, however, not everyone in my family is vegan or has my food sensitivities so you can also use toppings like peppers, red onions, garlic, or your go-to pizza favourites!
FOR THE CRUST:
- 1 cup chickpea flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1 cup water
- Avocado oil for the pan
FOR THE PIZZA:
- Sugar-free pizza sauce
- Fresh Basil
- Red Onion
- Nutritional Yeast
- In a large bowl, combine the chickpea flour, baking powder, salt and pepper. Whisk in the water until you have a smooth batter that is slightly runny.
- Heat a non-stick pan on the stove and coat the bottom with the avocado oil. Hover your hand over the pan and when you feel heat, pour in half of the batter and distribute the batter evenly (it will be about 8 - 10 inches wide)
- Cook until the bottom is browned and comes away easily from the pan, then flip and do the same to the other side.
- Once your crust is browned on both sides Pre-heat your oven to a high broil and transfer your crust onto an oven safe cooking sheet lined with parchment paper to dress your pizza.
- Place your pizza in the oven for about 2 - 3 minutes, and make sure you keep on eye on it so that your toppings don’t burn.
- Transfer your pizza from the pan to a cutting board, slice, and serve.
