Rated as 4.2 out of 5 Stars
Recipe By:sueb
"A bread like polenta, but without the corn! This is gluten-free bread with herb flavors based on my take of Liguria, Italy recipes."


  • 1 cup chickpea flour
  • 1 cup water
  • cooking spray
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped dried rosemary
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 pinch salt to taste (optional)


  1. Whisk chickpea flour and water together in a bowl until smooth; let sit at room temperature, 2 to 6 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Spray the inside of an 8-inch metal pie pan.
  3. Skim foam from the top of chickpea-water mixture. Add oil, Italian seasoning, and rosemary and stir until combined. Pour mixture into the prepared pan; sprinkle black pepper and salt over the top.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until edges begin to brown, about 15 minutes. Remove bread from pan and cut into wedges.
