Looking for a gluten-free flatbread recipe

I have a couple of friends that are gluten-free, and I'm a bit tired of putting out rice crackers for them.

Is there a gluten-free flatbread that 1)doesn't taste like cardboard, 2)is semi-authentic (as opposed to some substitionary reworking of a gluteny recipe), and 3)won't cost me a fortune to get ingredients for? Oh, if I could make it ahead of time, that'd be swell too. Wow, that's a lot of demands...I guess it is more of a pickle than I thought. ;)

Socca isn't a typical flatbread - more like a pancake. But it's delicious, customizable, and gluten-free. The NYT ran two great article on it. Here is the traditional version, with chickpea flour: http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9E05E6D7153FF93AA25753C1A9639C8B63

And here are some variations that use other types of flours: http://dinersjournal.blogs...

I second the socca, and I love Mark Bittman's take on it (NY Times).

Now I'll try the buckwheat piadine. We don't have a problem with gluten but love the different flavors and ideas.
