Chickpea Florentine Flatbread

If you love cream of spinach dip, chickpea anything, creamy white pizza, and lots of melty cheeses, you’re going to love this spin on a traditional flatbread. One of the best parts of this recipe is that you’ll buy pre-made flatbread in a package of two, which is great because we love doubling up.

                          chickpea florentine flatbread with cream, spinach, and parmesan

                               chickpea florentine flatbread with cream, spinach, and parmesan


  1. Preheat oven to 400°. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil and 1 tablespoon butter just until butter begins to brown. Add chickpeas and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden and crispy, 5 to 8 minutes; season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate; set aside.
  2. Reduce heat to medium-low. In same skillet over medium heat, melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant and very lightly golden, 1 to 2 minutes. Add flour and cook, stirring constantly, until mixture bubbles up and appears lightly golden, about 1 minute more.
  3. Add cream and bring mixture to a low simmer. Add spinach and cook, stirring constantly, until wilted, about 5 minutes. Stir in Parmesan until melted; season with salt and pepper. Transfer about 1/2 cup spinach mixture to a small bowl.
  4. Divide remaining spinach mixture between both flatbreads. Top with mozzarella.
  5. Bake flatbreads until cheese is bubbly, about 15 minutes. Drizzle with reserved sauce and sprinkle with reserved chickpeas.
