  • 2 cups chickpea flour
  • 3 Tbsp arrowroot powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • pinch black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil + extra for greasing
  • 1 cup water

Toppings (optional)*

  • easy marinara sauce cheese, sautéed or roasted veggies, chopped greens, fresh or died herbs, etc.


  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly grease a round pizza pan.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the chickpea flour, arrowroot powder, garlic powder, oregano, salt, and pepper.
  • Pour in the olive oil and water. Mix until well combined. You should have a sticky mixture (not a traditional, rollable pizza dough)—see picture for reference.
  • Using a rubber spatula, drop your dough into the center of your prepared pizza pan. Gently spread it out into a thin, 1/4 inch thick circle—see picture again for reference. Bake for 15 minutes or until dough is firm.
  • Remove baked crust from pan and top with your favorite toppings. Place back in oven and bake for another 5-10 minutes or until toppings are hot and cooked to perfection.
  • Serve warm. Leftovers will keep refrigerated in airtight container for up to 3 days, though best enjoyed fresh.


*I topped my chickpea flour pizza crust with my easy marinara sauce, sautéed garlic and onion, chopped spinach, roasted butternut squash and blue cheese.
