  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F and place a cast iron or stainless steel skillet in the oven while it preheats.

  2. Meanwhile, add the chickpea flour, rosemary, and a few grinds of pepper to a medium-size mixing bowl and whisk to combine.

  3. Continue whisking and slowly pour in 1 cup of warm water and set aside. The mixture will thicken a little as it sits.

  4. When the over reaches 450 degrees, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the chickpea flour and whisk lightly.

  5. Using oven mitts, remove skillet from hot oven and brush with 1-2 tablespoons of olive or avocado oil to coat the bottom of the pan. Be careful, the pan is very hot!

  6. Pour the chickpea batter evenly into the skillet. Place the pan back into the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes. Until the edges start to get nice and golden brown and crispy. (In our oven, it takes a full 15 minutes.)

  7. While the batter is baking, prepare your toppings. Measure out the sauce and set aside. Shred the cheese and set aside. We love artichoke hearts and roasted red peppers along with some shredded parmesan. Whatever your toppings, get them ready and have them assembled in a iine so they're ready to go in the next step.

  8. Remove the pan from the oven and top the crust with the sauce, other toppings, and cheese. Place the skillet back into the oven to bake for 12-15 additional minutes, until the cheese is melted and starting to brown.

  9. Remove the pizza from the oven and carefully transfer it to a cutting board. Slice and serve.


The original recipe comes from Pinch Me Good

The secret to making sure this crust works perfectly is to use a silicone brush to coat the skillet with oil and to be sure the skillet is completely coated. 

I tried using a 12" stainless steel skillet to make this, but the skillet was just a bit too large. When I switched to a 10" skillet, it worked perfectly. You can be as creative as you want with toppings, but remember more toppings may mean a longer baking time.
