This Gluten-Free Vegan Pizza Is Made With Chickpea FlourJazmine Janay
Think chickpeas are just meant for hummus? This pizza recipe uses them as a gluten-free crust base. And the result is amazing.
When I found out I was gluten sensitive, the first thing that popped into my mind was: “No more pizza?!” I thought my culinary world was coming to an end. Luckily, I discovered that there’s such a thing as gluten-free pizza, and that it can actually be pretty good.
Since I have additional sensitivities such as corn, potatoes, and rice, my options for a vegan and gluten-free pizza were quite limited. A family friend suggested I try chickpea flour instead of regular gluten-free flour, and it changed my life.
This vegan, gluten-free pizza recipe is not only delicious, but it’s also super simple to make. It involves a frying pan, which is quite unusual for pizza recipes, but it only takes about 45 minutes from start to finish and it’s the perfect meal that’s doesn’t cause my sensitives to flare up. If you’re gluten-sensitive or have additional sensitivities like me, this could be the perfect pizza recipe for you.

Step 1: In a bowl, combine all the crust ingredients. Mix, then pour in 2/3 cup water and mix again.
Step 2: In a non-stick pan, heat the oil of your choice over medium heat and then pour the pizza “dough” into the pan. Cook for about 5-8 minutes, until edges start to brown and the surface is dry. Then flip crust over and repeat.
Step 3: Transfer crust to baking sheet. Spread your vegan sauce of choice (tomato sauce, pesto, or both). Add your favorite toppings, and bake in a preheated oven for about 5-10 minutes, at 350 degrees F.
Serve hot, straight from the oven, and enjoy!
