Ingredients

For the pizza:

  • 1 pound homemade or store bought pizza dough — (I used my Neapolitan Pizza Dough recipe)
  • cornmeal for dusting the pizza peel
  • 1/4 cup pizza sauce
  • 2-3 large roasted red peppers from a can — , chopped
  • 1/4 cup pitted Kalamata olives
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 tbsp chopped green onions — (optional)

For the chickpeas:

  • 1/2 cup chickpeas from a can — , minced and dried with paper towels
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin
  • pinch of cayenne pepper

Instructions

For the chickpeas:

  1. In a bowl combine olive oil and spices. Add chickpeas. Toss to make sure they are evenly coated in seasoning. Set a side.

For the pizza:

  1. Preheat oven to 450 F. If you are using a pizza stone, place it in the oven.
  2. On a pizza peel or a baking sheet, sprinkle cornmeal. Cut dough in 2 pieces.
  3. Form a circle from each one, stretch pizza dough, where necessary. (I suggest that you bake pizzas separately).
  4. Divide pizza sauce between pizzas, spread it on top, leaving at least 1/2 inch around the edges.
  5. Top each pizza with 1/2 of the seasoned chickpeas and red peppers.
  6. Add olives, (If you are not a fan of baked olives in pizza, you may add them at the end. )
  7. Bake pizzas for 7-8 minutes, then add feta cheese and bake for 2 more minutes. Edges should be golden, chickpeas cooked and feta should be just warmed up at the end.
  8. Remove pizza from the oven, let it sit at room temperature for 2-3 minutes. Top with green onions (optional).
