Pepper and Herbs Skillet Flatbread is flat-out fabulous
I watched with anticipation as the hostess of an al fresco dinner party I was attending used a pizza cutter to slice a dark, thin round of baked dough into small squares. She told me it was called farinata. Made with chickpea flour, also known as garbanzo bean flour, the thin cake is popular in the Liguria region of Italy. There it is baked in a wood-burning oven and eaten as a snack.
