Grain Free Pizza

Whenever I look at this photo I start salivating. It had been many years since I had a slice of pizza but now I can enjoy it without the worry of the simple carbohydrates and the negative impact that will have on me. Chickpea is such a fabulous alternative to white flour. It provides you with another source of protein and also helps to keep you blood sugar at a well-balanced level.


1 cup chickpea flour
1 cup water
2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
½ teaspoon Sea Salt

Pizza Toppings:

2 tablespoons tomato paste
Steamed broccoli
Steamed sweet potato
Rocket leaves
Grated Cheddar Cheese
Goats Cheese
Fresh Basil


Turn oven to 200 degrees. Line a 20cm skillet with baking paper and set aside.

Combine all ingredients together and whisk until smooth.

Pour into prepared skillet and bake for 20 minutes.

Remove pizza from oven and top with whatever ingredients you desire. The pizza I created has the toppings listed above. Place pizza back in the oven for a further 10 minutes until the cheese has melted and is nice and golden

Makes 4 generous slices.
