Chickpea Sausage Pizza

Chickpeas are packed with protein, iron and are gluten-free. Great for soups and stews, they are an excellent protein substitute for sausage. With a few simple ingredients, you can turn a simple can of beans into a culinary delight. For this recipe, I've purchased all the essential ingredients from my local Dollar Tree for $5.09. Spices, seasonings, and oils are items you may already have in your food pantry. So grab your measuring spoons pans and crank up the oven, and let's get cooking!
