  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a non-stick mat.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the chickpea flour, water, olive oil, and salt. Allow the batter to sit for 10 minutes while you prep the cauliflower.
  • Toss the cauliflower in the chickpea batter until well coated. Transfer the cauliflower to the baking sheet using a slotted spoon, shaking off any excess batter, and roast in the oven for about 15 minutes, rotating once halfway through, until crispy and lightly browned.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, toss the crispy cauliflower with ¼ cup of the BBQ sauce.
  • Arrange the pizza crust on the baking sheet and top with the remaining BBQ sauce, spreading into a thin layer. Sprinkle with the cheese and red onions, followed by the prepared cauliflower.
  • Transfer to the oven and bake until the cheese is bubbly and brown, about 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and garnish with the cilantro leaves. Serve immediately.
