About this Recipe
By: Lisa Chilvers
Made from chickpea flour and similar to Socca, this base is versatile. I smoother mine in roasted veggies, caramelized onions, olives and top with crumbled nut cheeses..
- 1 cup Chickpea Flour
1 cup Water
1 1/2 tbsp Avocado Oil (divided)
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
1/3 cup Tomato Sauce
1/4 tsp Oregano
1/8 tsp Garlic Powder
1/8 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
6 ozs Mozzarella Cheese (shredded)
- 2 tbsp Basil Leaves (finely chopped)
The Steps to Take
In a mixing bowl whisk the chickpea ﬂour, water, two-thirds of the oil and salt together until smooth. Let the batter sit for 1 hour at room temperature.
About 10 minutes before the batter is done resting preheat the oven to 450ºF (232ºC) and place a 10-inch cast-iron pan inside the warming oven.
Remove the pan from the oven and turn the broiler to high. Add the remaining oil to the pan and swirl to coat. Pour the batter into the pan and place it under the broiler for 5 to 7 minutes until the edges have browned and the top of the ﬂatbread is ﬁrm. Remove from the oven.
Reduce the oven temperature to 350ºF (176ºC).
Carefully remove the chickpea ﬂatbread from the pan and transfer to a baking sheet. Top it with tomato sauce, spices and shredded cheese. Return to the oven and bake for 10 to 12 minutes until the cheese is bubbly and browned. Top with basil.
Slice and serve immediately. Enjoy!
