Chickpea Flour Pizza
  • ½ cup chickpea flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon dried oregano, crumbled between your fingers
  • ¼ teaspoon dried basil, crumbled between your fingers
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • Generous pinch of cayenne or pepper
  • Pinch of turmeric
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  1. Combine the chickpea flour, salt, oregano, basil, garlic powder, cayenne, and turmeric in a medium bowl. Gradually whisk in the water, beating well after each addition until completely smooth. Generously oil a 10-inch skillet (nonstick will work best) or mist it well with nonstick cooking spray, and heat over medium-high heat. Stir the batter and pour it into the pan, scraping all of it out with a rubber spatula. Drizzle the olive oil over the top. Cook until the top is set and the bottom is nicely browned, about 5-7 minutes. Adjust the heat as necessary to prevent over-browning. Carefully turn the dough over and cook the other side until well browned, about 5 minutes. Slide onto a round plate and slice into 8 wedges. Serve hot.
