Pizza often gets a bad rap not only because of its cheese and meat-laden toppings, but also for its thick crust made with white flour. This version uses chickpea flour as a creative solution. This recipe comes to us from registered dietitian Dawn Jackson Blatner and appears in our brand-new cookbook, The Meatless Monday Pizza Collection: 10 Recipes from Top Cookbook Authors.
For the Crust:
- 1/3 cup chickpea flour*
- 1/3 cup water
- 1 teaspoon oil
- 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
- cooking spray
- 1/4 cup marinara sauce
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh spinach
- 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella
- 1/4 cup quartered cherry tomatoes
- 1/8 teaspoon oregano
*often found in the natural foods section
Whisk flour, water, oil & salt together until smooth.
Pour batter onto hot griddle misted with cooking spray.
Heat each side for 4-5 minutes (until crust starts to brown).
Flip crust once more and top with marinara sauce, spinach, cheese, tomato & oregano.
Heat for 3 minutes or until cheese melts.
Optional: Double ingredients to make 2 personal 8” pizzas.
