This Chickpea Pizza Crust is an embellished version of socca, a chickpea flatbread. It's the perfect way to get all the protein you need on your vegan diet. 

First, we make a pancake-like batter from chickpea flour, herbs, baking powder, and water. Instead of placing the batter on a baking sheet, we decided to add oil to a cast-iron skillet and heat it until it was scorching hot before adding the batter. The oil will give the chickpea pizza crust a super crispy texture. 

We topped the chickpea pizza crust with fresh tomatoes before finishing it in the oven. A fresh sprinkling of parsley and a homemade garlic dipping sauce completes this chickpea pizza and makes it a complete meal.

Garlic Dipping Sauce
In a small pot, add butter. Set pot over medium-high heat and allow butter to melt.
Use a garlic press to press the 2 cloves of garlic. Add pressed garlic to the butter and cook it for 30 seconds until it is fragrant. 
Stir in the ground thyme and remove garlic butter from the stove. Let the garlic butter cool completely.
In a small bowl, add vegan mayonnaise and vinegar. Add garlic butter and whisk until the dipping sauce is smooth. Cover the garlic dipping sauce with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to use.
Chickpea Pizza Crust
Preheat oven to 415 °F.   
Add chickpea flour, blanched almond flour, sea salt, garlic powder, onion powder, basil, thyme, oregano, and baking powder in a medium bowl. Whisk until combined, making sure to get rid of any clumps.
Add warm water and stir with a spatula until combined. The chickpea batter will look like pancake batter. 
In a medium cast-iron skillet, add olive oil. Place over medium-high heat and let the oil heat for 2-3 minutes.
Pour the chickpea pizza crust into the skillet. Wet an offset spatula with water and spread the chickpea pizza crust into an even layer.   
Add the tomato slices on top of the chickpea pizza crust. Bake for 10-15 minutes until the edges of the pizza are golden brown.
To remove the chickpea crust pizza from the skillet, carefully use a large spatula to lift the pizza from the skillet. Cut the chickpea crust into 4 slices.  Garnish the chickpea pizza crust with fresh parsley and serve with the garlic dipping sauce.
