5 Ingredient Gluten-free & Vegan Tomato Flatbread Farinata

by Lucia

Have you heard about Farinata? It has the origins in Italy, its so delicious and super-easy to prepare. We simply love it and we prepare it at home very often. Its healthy, nutrient, great for dinner and matches perfectly with some fresh veggies or salad. I have already showed before how to prepare basic farinata and also the one with onions. Today, I will share the recipe for this amazing gluten-free and vegan Tomato Flatbread Farinata.

This farinata is made only from 5 ingredients, the main one is a chickpea flour. It’s so easy to make, really. You just combine all ingredients together and set aside for some time. Then you pour it in a baking pan and bake it. As its made from chickpea flour, it’s very nutrient and protein-rich. Crunchy from outside but soft inside.

Have you heard about Farinata? It has the origins in Italy, its so delicious and super-easy to prepare. We simply love it… Gluten-free Recipes 5 Ingredient Gluten-free & Vegan Tomato Flatbread Farinata European Print
Serves: 3 Prep Time: Cooking Time:
Nutrition facts: 200 calories 20 grams fat


  • 500 ml water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 25 g extra virgin olive oil
  • 150 g of chickpea flour
  • A cup of cherry tomatoes, cut in half


  1. In a bowl, combine well all ingredients by using a whisk. Leave it in a fridge for 4 hours, if you are in a hurry, 0,5-1 hour is ok too. Before baking it, take it out of the fridge to reach a room temperature. 
  2. Heat the oven for 205 degrees (option: grill plus ventilation.)
  3. Grease your pan or put a parchment paper (optional).
  4. Place cherry tomatoes in the baking pan. 
  5. Take the batter and mix it well with a whisk. Pour the batter over the tomatoes and bake it in oven for 25-30 minutes. The batter should be high about 0,7/1 cm, so use a pan that is large enough.
  6. To avoid burning, when you see that after 25-30 minutes the top turns very golden, change settings on your oven for a grill option and bake it other 5 minutes. After, it's time to take it out.



This recipe is gluten-free, vegan, plant-based. I use a round pan of 32 cm diameter. If you don't have such, please, use some pan which is large enough, as farinata should be high from 0,7 mm to 1 cm.
