You will find cecina (pronounced chay-CHEE-na) throughout Tuscany, where it is often served as a bar snack. The name comes from the type of flour--chickpea (or ceci) flour--that gives the flatbread its nutty taste. It's best served soon after making, with just a sprinkling of black pepper, or with pesto, salsa crudo, artichoke spread, or other savory toppings. The dough comes together quickly but does need to rest three hours, so plan accordingly.

Ingredients

  • 250 grams chickpea flour
  • water (1 lt.)
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • salt
  • ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Add the water to the chickpea flour, letting the flour fall to the bottom of the bowl and then stirring with a wooden spoon.
  2. Add the extra virgin olive oil and a pinch of salt.
  3. Let the mixture rest for 3 hours.
  4. Place the mixture in a shallow baking pan greased with oil, the mixture should not be more than 1/2 centimeter in thickness.
  5. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees Celsius and bake for approximately 40 minutes, or until a golden crust has formed on the surface.
  6. Serve cut into pieces sprinkled with black pepper.

Out of all of the flatbread recipes I have put together, this one has to be the greatest one I have ever been graced with. The flatbread didn't turn out like stone like many other recipes and it has a great coating of seasoning on it. I will be getting my fill of this 5 star tuscan flatbread later this month.
