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.
