I mean cheesy pizza is so last Thursday.
The world is a changin’. We’re putting grass-fed bacon in ice cream and flaked sea salt on chocolate and peanut butter on pizza and it’s all AHMAAAAZING.
So when the bloggy boos wanted to do brunch for this month’s theme, I thought, “what better to brunch on than a cheese-less, tomato sauce-less, not the least bit savory yet very round crust of sorts complete with chunky monkey toppings? Sounds just like pizza, right? Right-o.
It’s kind of like a circular open face pb nanner sammie. Actually it’s exactly like that. The chickpea flour crust is pretty dreamy because it cooks up in less than five minutes and is packed with fiber and protein. You can find it at pretty much any grocery store these days. For a quicker version, I’ve made a big pancake using Simple Mills pancake mix with an additional egg as the crust!
If you’re feeling savory, go back the old favorite, my Chickpea Flour Breakfast Pizza. It’s a real winner, loaded with eggs, salsa, avocado, and green onions galore. Ellie Goulding’s “Explosions” is coming to mind. Flavor explosions, that is. This Fruity Flourless Breakfast Pizza is another heavenly choice!
Basically this vegan and gluten-free chickpea flour crust is totally customizable. Swap the almond milk for water and the maple and cinnamon for garlic and salt before slathering it with avocado and red pepper flakes. Avocado toast pizza anyone?! OMG can we please make that a thing?! Insert praying hand emoji here.Print
For the crust:
- ¼ cup chickpea flour
- ¼ cup almond milk
- 2 tsp pure maple syrup
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
For the toppings:
- 1-2 tbsp creamy peanut butter
- 1 ripe banana, sliced
- Toppings of choice (I used hemp seeds and cacao nibs)
- Drizzle of pure maple syrup
- Heat a medium skillet sprayed with cooking spray over medium heat.
- Whisk together the crust ingredients until smooth.
- Pour batter into hot pan and cook for 4-6 minutes, or until firm and easy to flip.
- Flip and cook for another few minutes, or until set.
- Top with peanut butter, banana, toppings, and pure maple syrup.
