Um, this is incredible! and that's pretty much all I have to say, a ten-minute pizza from start to finish.

A five-minute gluten free chickpea pizza base that my kiddos gobble up!


It appears I have been living under a rock, I had not come across chickpea pizza bases until I stumbled upon it on Instagram. The lovely Kayla of BabyMangi posted about it. I thought it seemed too good to be true.

I did a little research and it is totally a thing, a thing I have managed to not come across before in the 36 years of my life.

But now that I know this five-minute gluten-free chickpea pizza base is loved by my kids, it is now entrenched in my life.

It is so fast to make my kiddos have been having it for a post kindy snack, it's also a great lazy Friday night dinner!

It turns out chickpea pizza bases are actually originally an Italian thing, an Italian street food called Socca. The original has a few more ingredients.

I 've stripped it back to the basics, i.e. the easiest way I could make it, with the fewest ingredients that my kids would still eat!

Hope you enjoy it!
