Chickpea Pizza

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup MAC Foods Besan Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely chopped Rosemary
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Toppings

  • Proscuitto, Feta and Semi-dried Tomato
  • Fresh tomato (chopped), Rocket, finely chopped onion, Parmesan cheese (grated)

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C.
  2. Sift the Besan Flour and salt together into a bowl.
  3. Whilst constantly whisking, slowly add 1/4 cup of water to the flour until it forms a paste.  Beat with a wooden spoon until a smooth paste is formed.  Whisk in the remaining water and allow to stand for at least 30 minutes. 
  4. Add the rosemary and stir well.
  5. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in an ovenproof fry pan on a medium-high heat.
  6. Pour batter into fry pan and drizzle remaining oil on top.
  7. Cook in fry pan until the bottom is golden and crisp (approximately 2-3 minutes).  Burst any large bubbles whilst in fry pan.
  8. Remove fry pan from heat and put into oven for 10 minutes (to allow pizza to cook through).
  9. Remove from oven and add your favourite toppings.
  10. Change oven to grill (or move to grill). Place pizza under grill for 4-5 minutes to crisp base and melt toppings.
  11. Remove from grill and cut into wedges.
