Chickpea Pizza

For the crust:
 1 cup chickpea flour
 ½ tsp salt
 1 cup water
 Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil for greasing the pan
For the toppings:
 1 15 oz can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
 2 tbsp Colavita Roasted Garlic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
 1 small bunch Tuscan kale, stemmed, leaves torn
 1 small fennel bulb, very thinly sliced crosswise
 1 tbsp za’atar
 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
 Salt and pepper to taste
 ¼ cup tahini
 Lemon zest and fresh parsley for serving
1

Preheat oven to 450°F. Sift the chickpea flour with the salt into a medium bowl. Slowly add 1/4 cup of the water, whisking constantly to form a paste. Beat with a wooden spoon until smooth. Whisk in the remaining 3/4 cup of water and let the batter stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Drizzle a pizza pan with 1 tablespoon of the Colavita olive oil. Pour the batter onto the pan and drizzle the remaining 2 tablespoons of Colavita olive oil on top. Place the dough in the oven and bake for 5 minutes on one side, flip and cook 3-5 minutes to finish on the other side. Remove from the oven to top.

Prepare the topping:

Place the kale, chickpeas and fennel in a large ziploc bag.
