Servings: 10 mini pizzas
- 15 cherry tomatoes, sliced
- 2 avocados, diced
Make the chickpea crust:
Place the chickpeas and all other ingredients except the rice flour in a blender, and blend into a smooth paste.
Add the rice flour and whisk it in. The batter will be like a very thick pancake batter.
Heat a griddle and spray with some cooking spray. Wait until the griddle is very hot. Pour 1/4 cup of the batter in the center and tease if needed to form a circle.
Let the bottom brown thoroughly. When the sides and top appear dry, flip over and cook until browned. The pancakes feel a little delicate at this stage so handle carefully. They will firm up as they stand.
Make the pesto:
Place the frozen spinach in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 5 minutes.
Place the spinach in a food processor with all other ingredients and process into a coarse paste. If you wish, you can add a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil, but you can also keep this fully fat-free.
Assemble the mini pizzas:
Place the pancakes on a baking sheet, slather on some pesto, and pop them under a broiler for five minutes.
Slather on the pesto and pile on the cherry tomatoes and avocados.
