Chef’s Tip

To make this recipe gluten-free swap the plain flour for gluten-free flour and check your baking powder is also gluten-free. You could also add classic vegan pizza toppings to the chickpea base if you wish, such as a tomato sauce and vegan cheese. Simply add these at step 4 instead of the chutney.
