Ingredients
  

Crust

  • 1 ½ cups dry chickpeas garbanzo beans ground into flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Magic Dust

Toppings

  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 12 ounces fresh mozzarella
  • 2 handfuls spinach
  • 3 roma tomatoes sliced thinly
  • 4 to 6 eggs
  • 1/2 pound italian chicken sausage browned
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • Grind chickpeas into flour with blender. This is really loud, but works well. Grind on medium to high speed for about 1-2 minutes depending on the blender. The end result should be coarse flour texture. I have experimented in grinding it till super fine, but found I prefer a little more texture.
  • Restart blender on the low setting and slowly add water to combine. Alternatively you can place the chickpea flour into a large mixing bowl and slowly whisk in water, oil and Magic Dust. The mixture should resemble a thin pancake batter.
  • Let the batter rest for an hour (up to 12 hours). This allows the liquid to penetrate and creates a smooth, creamy texture for your crust. No time to wait? Just soak it while the oven preheats, it will still be great!
  • Preheat the oven to 450F. Line a quarter sheet pan (9x13) with parchment paper and lightly coat the paper with olive oil. Prepare pizza topping ingredients.
  • Pour the batter into the pan, swirl to spread evenly and to the edges. PLEASE, FOR THE LOVE OF PIZZA, DO NOT STIR IT IN THE PAN WITH YOUR SPATULA! IT WILL STICK AND YOUR FRIENDS WILL LAUGH AT YOU. It should look like a big pancake!
  • Put pizza crust into the oven and cook for 20 minutes or until the bread begins to brown slightly on the edges. Some small cracks may emerge on the surface too, no worries.
  • Remove the pan from the oven. Gently loosen the crust from the parchment paper to ensure a smooth lift off when loaded with your toppings.
  • Build your pizza by spreading the pizza sauce first,then cover with browned chicken sausage, spinach, tomatoes, and mozzarella. Return to oven for 20 minutes.
  • Remove pizza from oven. Create landing zones for each egg by denting the cheese topping with the back of a large spoon. Without the dent, your egg is likely to shoot right off the pizza! Crack all eggs onto the pizza and return to the oven. Cook for an additional 5 minutes depending on your egg preference. Keep an eye on the pizza, the eggs can go quick and will continue to cook during the resting period.
  • Remove from oven and transfer pizza to a cooling rack. Allow to rest for 3-5 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and cut as desired.
