  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
  • Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl - chickpea flour, general purpose flour, salt, and garlic.
  • Add the water slowly and mix until all ingredients are incorporated and the dough is formed. You may not have to add all of the water to form the dough. If you add too much water, the dough will become too sticky to work with. You can always add a little more flour until it doesn't stick to your hands.
  • Roll the dough out and shape on a floured surface. Roll it as thin as it will go and shape to about a 12 or 14-inch pizza. A 14-inch is like a thin crust and 12-inch is like Brooklyn style. The smaller side is easier to shape. Roll also the corners.

  • Carefully lift the dough and place onto round cookie sheet or pizzaa pan.
  • Place on the center rack of the oven and bake for it 10 minutes - dough will have start to brown.

  • Remove the crust from oven and top the pizza with your toppings. For more inspiration, look at my whole food pizza sauce recipe and my pineapple pepper pizza recipes! *
    Preparing Pineapple Pepper Plant-based Pizza
  • Leave the pizza in the oven until the toppings are cooked (to your desired doneness) and cheese has melted and slightly browned (if used). This takes about 10-15 min. Enjoy!


* You may try a gluten-free flour blend instead of the unbleached all purpose flour. I have not yet tried this! Please let me know if you try it out and have success!
