Meatless Monday: Chickpea Pizza with Broccoli Rabe
Posted by MSLO Blogger
1 Garbanzo bean or chickpea flour-or besan in Indian markets
2 Chickpea flour, salt, and water combined and resting for 30 minutes to thicken slightly
3 Ingredients for the pizza-from left to right-chickpea flour mixture with rosemary, olive oil, broccoli rabe, and aged gouda cheese
4 Once the chickpea mixture hits the hot pan it starts to cook around the edges
5 Cheese scattered on top
6 All assembled and ready to go into a 500°F oven
7 Baked pizza
Known as socca in France and farinata in Italy, chickpea pizza is just plain good and it's gluten-free! No yeast involved, just a little bit of resting time for the dough to thicken slightly and then a brief time in the oven and you get a pizza with a nutty taste and a crisp crust. You can find chickpea flour in health food and Indian stores alongside the other flours.
So it's another meatless Monday here in my home and this one got a thumbs up too.
