Chickpea Flatbread Pizza with Hummus and Avocado (Vegan and Gluten Free)

I’m having a lazy day today relaxing after the crazy week I’ve just had, starting with twisting my ankle and being out of action last Sunday, getting a horrible cold, then Barcelona for 3 days with work (mostly work and a tiny bit of play!), flying to Glasgow late Friday night, doing a fun demo at The Allergy and FreeFrom show yesterday and then finally home. Phew!
So I’ve had a very relaxing day and now a quick and easy lunch is required and I don’t think anything beats a flatbread pizza. Super tasty and satisfying and can be made in minutes of course! At Andys request I made a protein packed gram flour flatbread base which is naturally gluten free as its made from chickpeas. I then topped it with hummus, avocado for some good fats and just deliciousness, cherry tomatoes and some charred asparagus for a change.

The gram flour flatbread has a slightly drier texture so I usually make sure I top with some creamy toppings like hummus or avocado.

I actually can’t believe I haven’t posted a recipe for this before as after my buckwheat flatbreads this is a regular weekend lunchtime feature.

  1- 2 servings
  10 minutes preparation time
  7 minutes cook time


  • To make the gram flour flatbread;
  • 1 cup gram flour
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • Pinch black pepper
  • 1 tsp pink Himalayan Salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 avocado sliced
  • Hummus
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Handful asparagus
  • Olive oil


  1. To make the flatbread; 
  2. To make the gram flour flatbread; pre-heat a griddle pan (or frying pan) so that its nice and hot.
  3. In a bowl mix the flour, oil, baking powder, salt & pepper and then add the water. Mix to form a dough and knead a little so that it comes together.
  4. On a floured chopping board roll out the dough and then place on a griddle pan (griddle pans work the best as you get lovely charred stripes on the flatbread but a frying pan also works).
  5. The flatbread will literally cook in a couple of minutes, simply flip it over when the underside is starting to char and cook on the other side a minute or so longer.
  6. Charred asparagus;
  7. Heat a small frying pan to medium then a splash of olive oil.
    Add the asparagus and fry for a few minutes turning occasionally until they are a little charred.
  8. Top pizza;
  9. Top the pizza with hummus, avocado, tomatoes, asparagus, rocket or anything else you fancy.

      Hi Gina
      I’m afraid I haven’t tried but I think almond flour would need to be binded by eggs.
      Best wishes

      Hi Daniela
      Thanks for you question – gram flour is chickpea flour. I hope you can find it. Buckwheat flour is also gluten free and would work well for this recipe.
      I hope you can find some.
      Love, Niki ????????
