Vegan Chickpea Pizza Dough Recipe
This vegan chickpea pizza dough recipe is ideal for any toppings you might enjoy on your pizza. The flavor is wonderful!
Have you ever tried Socca? It’s a chickpea flatbread that can be made as a flatbread, pizza crust or even taco shells, depending on how thick you cook it. It’s fabulous stuff that will handle a variety of seasonings.
I last made this for my other blog where I used it simply as a flatbread. But when pizza night came up for me and my little guy, I knew I could just play around with a spices a bit and end up with a delicious pizza crust instead. So that’s exaclty what I did and it was completely delicious!
For toppings, I used Choa cheese (the plain variety), mushrooms, red bell peppers, red onions and finally, after it was done baking, I topped it with some fresh arugula. Totally yum!!! This is definitely going to be my go-to pizza dough recipe from this point forward.

VEGAN CHICKPEA PIZZA DOUGH RECIPE:
One of the best gluten-free pizza crusts I've ever had!
- 1 1/4 cup chickpea flour
- 1 tbsp. garlic powder
- 1 tbsp. onion powder
- 1 tbsp. Italian Seasoning
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 1/4 cup water
- 2 tbsp. oil (divided)
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together everything except 1 tbsp. of oil until you have a nice, smooth batter.
Warm that last tablespoon of oil in a large, cast iron pan (about 10 inches).
Pour in the batter and cook this like you would a pancake. The crust will be thick, but it needs to be to hold all those toppings and sauce. This is definitely not a thin-crust pizza!
Cook on both sides until they are well browned and then remove the pan from the heat.
Preheat oven to 375 F.
Ladle the sauce over the crust and add whatever toppings you'd like to use.
Bake for about 20-30 minutes, or until the toppings are fully cooked to your liking.
Slice and enjoy!
