Have you ever tried socca? It’s a chickpea dough that can be baked into a flatbread, gluten-free pizza crust, or even taco shells, depending on how thick you make it. It’s fabulous stuff that will handle a variety of seasonings.

The last time I made socca 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 the spices a bit to create a delicious gluten-free pizza crust recipe instead. So that’s exactly what I did. As a result, I now have a new favorite healthier pizza crust!

The structure of chickpea flour pizza crust isn’t any different than any other gluten-free pizza crust. It’s sturdy enough to hold all of the toppings you want to add to it. Here are my favorites:

  • vegan cheese
  • mushrooms
  • red bell peppers
  • red onions
  • fresh arugula

All of the toppings except for the arugula are added to the pizza before baking. After baking, top the pizza with some fresh arugula. Totally yum!!! This is definitely going to be my go-to vegan pizza dough recipe from this point forward.

  • 1 ¼ cups chickpea flour
  • 1 tbsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp. onion powder
  • 1 tbsp. Italian Seasoning (see link above to make your own)
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 ¼ cups 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!
