Grain free, healthy, high fibre chickpea flour pizza!
Not only are you getting to eat pizza but it’s made from a veg!
Chickpea flour AKA gram flour is so cheap and easy to get once you know where to look, it’s usually in the continental/world food section of the supermarkets so I urge you to try it out, it’s not expensive and is a healthy, easy way of cooking with new flours.
For another chickpea flour based recipe check out these Veggie slices
Note: You will need a small circular pie base to hold and shape the mix as it’s runny until baked, I used a small silicon rubber pie mold. You could possibly use a small frying pan that’s oven safe however I haven’t tested this so let me know if you do.
Once you have the flour it’s easy and quick to make this pizza, you don’t have to knead anything, plus it’s naturally high in protein and fiber, grain and gluten free so it should be suitable for many diets. Bloat free pizza anyone?
TIP: For best digestion if you have the time, allow the flour and water to soak for a few hours
For more inspiration on toppings why not use up leftovers from your fridge or freezer like a veggie meatball or sausage (I like Gosh brand) like this one below, with Bolognese sauce for the tomato base too.
Recipe (makes 1 small pizza)*
-70g chickpea/yellow split pea flour (aka gram flour)

*Recipe can be easily doubled in order to make a bigger version if you only have bigger moulds. .
If time allows, presoak the mix
Preheat your oven to 160C fan
Mix the flour and water together and pour into the mould
Bake at 180c for 10mins, remove, add toppings then bake for another 12mins before serving
