Kelly loves love this recipe for Garbanzo Flour Flatbread and Pizza Crust over traditional crust because it is so filling, helping with portion control. The garbanzo flour provides much more fiber and protein than a grain-based crust and, since it is gluten-free, you don’t have to worry about dietary restrictions! Plus, you can make the “dough” in one minute versus a rising crust that takes hours.

The flour she uses is Bob’s Red Mill (no sponsor ties). She finds it at Whole Foods, and her local natural foods store.  In regular grocery stores it usually found in the natural section or gluten free section. @EatwRealLiveWell

Garbanzo Flour Flatbread and Pizza Crust


1 Cup (120 g) garbanzo flour
5.5 ounces water
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp garlic powder
dash salt


Heat oven to 350 F.

Stir until well mixed with no lumps. If mixture seems too thin, let sit for 10-15 minutes.

Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray lightly with olive oil spray.

Pour batter over paper and spread evenly into pizza shape with rubber spatula.

Bake for 10 minutes if making pizza, 12-14 if making flat bread.
-If making pizza, after removing from heat*, add pizza toppings of your choice and place back in oven for 5 minutes.Slice and serve!

Mary has a great vegan, gluten free pizza crust recipe website.

She loves this recipe because it can feed everyone in her family. Her husband has Celiac disease and he gets to still enjoy pizza and her kids love it! And the fact that she can mix it all up in her bread maker makes it super easy.
