Description

This delicious flatbread hails from Tuscany's coast and is an ideal snack or appetizer served right out of the oven. Made with chickpea flour, it's simply flavored with olive oil, rosemary and salt, followed by a few turns of freshly cracked black pepper right before serving. Though certainly not required, if you want to get fancy, you can serve the cecina bread with pesto or an Italian tomato spread.

250 grams chickpea flour
water (1 lt.)
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
rosemary (twigs)
salt
black peppercorns

4Place the mixture in a shallow baking pan greased with extra virgin olive oil. The bread should be 1/2 centimeter in thickness.
