BBQ Chickpea Flatbread

This tasty flatbread can be served as an entrée or as an appetizer at your next gathering with friends and family!


  • 1 package pre-made whole wheat pizza dough (makes 1 pizza)
  • 1 cup (250 mL) your favourite low sodium BBQ sauce
  • 1 can (19 oz/540 mL) no-salt-added chickpeas, drained & rinsed (yields 2 cups/500 mL cooked chickpeas)
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • 1 cup (250 mL) shredded mozzarella
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) fresh basil, roughly chopped


Pre-heat oven to 425°F (220°C).

Roll out dough to roughly an 8-inch x 10-inch (20 cm x 25 cm) rectangle.  Place dough on parchment lined baking sheet.

Combine the chickpeas, onion and BBQ sauce in a bowl.  Stir until chickpeas are coated.  Spread the mixture evenly on the dough and top with shredded cheese.

Bake for 15 minutes, then top with chopped basil before serving.


  • You can use ready-made flatbread or pizza crust instead of dough.  Follow the baking instructions on the flatbread or pizza crust package as oven temperature and baking time may vary from the recipe.

I liked it

I can easily make this gluten free by using a gluten free pizza crust and I love any new idea to use chick peas, a good source of
protein . . . would be great for Meatless Mondays!
