Chickpea and ham pizza

1
If making at home without a pizza oven, preheat a fan oven to 250°C
2
Soak the chickpeas in a large bowl with salt, rosemary, bay leaves and a pinch of bicarbonate of soda for 12 hours
3
After this time, drain and transfer to a large pan. Cover with cold water, bring to the boil and continue to cook for another 4 hours before draining, ensuring the chickpeas are fully cooked through, but holding their shape
4
When the chickpeas are ready, quickly sauté a clove of garlic in a large frying pan. Add the chickpeas and cook for about 5 minutes over a high heat
  • extra virgin olive oil, Franco uses oil from Caiazzo
  • 1 garlic clove

Shape a 250g portion of dough, leaving the edges slightly thicker than the centre. Evenly distribute the chickpeas over the surface of the pizza
6
Cut the fior di latte cheese into thin strips and distribute them evenly over the pizza. Drizzle over a little extra virgin olive oil then cook in the pizza oven for about 90 seconds (or in the fan oven for 6–7 minutes)
7
Cut the Lonzarda ham into thin strips and evenly distribute all over the pizza. Add the lettuce and serve
