Looking for a grain-free, high protein, vegan style pizza crust? This recipe is the answer to your prayers! I promise you will not be disappointed.
Why use chickpea flour?
Chickpea flour is lower in calories than traditional white and wheat flour, higher in protein and fiber, and far less processed. It also contains tons of vitamins and minerals! One cup of chickpea flour contains over all the folate you need in a day, making it a great choice for women of child-bearing age, pregnant women, and those breastfeeding!
· 1 cup chickpea flour
· 1 cup water
· 2 tablespoons avocado oil
· 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
· 1/4 teaspoon salt
· 1/4 teaspoon pepper
· 1/2 cup shredded cheese
· 1/4 cup tomato sauce
· 1/4 cup spinach
1. Mix chickpea flour, 1 1/2 tablespoons avocado oil, water, garlic powder, salt, and pepper together in a bowl. Combine well.
2. Let the mixture sit for 30 minutes to allow for thickening.
3. While the batter is sitting, preheat the oven to broil. Place your pan in the oven and allow the pan to heat for 15 minutes.
4. After 15 minutes, remove the pan from the oven and add 1/2 tablespoon of avocado oil. Swirl it around to coat the pan.
5. Pour in batter and tilt pan until batter is evenly spread across.
6. Turn oven down to 420 Fahrenheit and place Socca Pizza in the oven. Bake for 6-8 minutes.
7. Remove from oven and add tomato sauce, cheese, and spinach.
8. Place the Socca Pizza back in the oven for 3-4 minutes.
9. Remove from oven, cool, and enjoy!
-For this recipe, I recommend a 10 to 14 inch Pan. The wider the pan, the thinner the crust. A smaller pan may just mean thicker crust and longer cooking time!
-To make this recipe vegan, try it using a vegan cheese!
