Recipe: Garbanzo Bean Pizza Crust



Garbanzo Bean Flour Pizza Crust

  • 2/3 cup garbanzo flour (Chick Pea Flour)
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ tsp dried basil
  • ¼ tsp dried oregano

Combine ingredients in a bowl with a whisk. Let the mixture sit at room temperature for 30 – 45 minutes.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Turn on oven broiler to high. Coat pan with organic olive oil. Pour crust batter onto the pan then quickly use the back of the spoon to spread out to cover the entire pan. You want the crust as thin as possible. When the bottom is brown flip the crust. Cook the other side about 2 – 3 minutes each side. Once both sides are cooked remove from heat. 

Then top the crust with desired pizza topping while still in the pan. Place the pan under the broiler for 3 – 5 minutes until cheese is melted and toppings are tender. Let cool for 2 minutes, slice and enjoy!

Topping Ideas: 

Pizza sauce
Sautéed fresh mushrooms
Baby spinach
Fresh mozzarella
Fresh Basil 
Grated parmesan cheese
Grated Romano cheese
Red peppers
Onions
Pepperoni

Note: When using pizza sauce use it sparingly because it could make the crust soggy. Also read the labels. Some organic sauces contain more sugar than others.
