1. Prepare the Avocado Dough:
- In a bowl, mash the ripe avocados until smooth. Mix gluten-free flour blend, baking powder, salt, and lemon juice into the dough. Combine well.
2. Form a Dough:
- Add warm water little by little to the mix until a soft dough forms. For a few minutes, knead the dough until it gets smooth and springy.
3. Rest the Dough:
- Cover the dough with a clean kitchen towel and let it rest for about 15-20 minutes.
4. Preheat the Oven:
- Warm the oven up to 200°C (400°F).
5. Divide and Roll Out:
- Split the dough into four equal pieces. Roll out each piece into a thin, flat round on a floured surface.
- Place the rolled-out dough on a baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.
7. Optional Toppings:
- If desired, top the baked flatbreads with sliced cherry tomatoes, fresh basil leaves, a drizzle of olive oil, and a sprinkle of salt and pepper.
8. Serve and Enjoy:
