I love hummus and I love pizza. So I thought why not just make hummus pizza?! Instead of tomato sauce I spread hummus on the pizza dough. I then added spinach, cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, artichokes, olives, and red onion. Boy, it turned out sooo delicious!!
I just came home from Asia last week. I spent three weeks traveling from India to Thailand with my mom and I still suffer from some kind of cold shock. I knew it would be cold when I got home, but I didn’t expect it to be this cold. We had like 86 degrees and lots of sun, so it kinda feels like I’m living in Siberia right now. Haha! No, I’m exaggerating, but I definitely wasn’t looking forward to the cold weather. But I sure was looking forward to having my own kitchen again and being able to cook my own food. Don’t get me wrong, the food we had in Asia was amazing, but I really missed cooking.
So when I got home, I got some delicious hummus and other healthy lentil and bean spreads waiting for me in the fridge. NOA sent me some of their new products to test and I couldn’t wait to make some great recipes using their hummus. All of their spreads and dips are 100 % vegan and made with fresh and healthy ingredients. And they’re so yummy! The hummus pizza was the first recipe I made after I got back from my vacation and I couldn’t get enough of it. We enjoyed it with a big bowl of green salad and it made such a great dinner.
I made the pizza dough from scratch this time, but of course you can also use store-bought pizza dough instead. However, the dough really couldn’t be much easier. All you need is flour, instant yeast, salt, and olive oil. The only thing is that it needs to rise for about an hour. So if you got enough time to wait for it to rise, I strongly recommend making your own pizza dough. It’s really worth waiting!
I hope you like this vegan hummus pizza as much as I do. Hope you all have a great week and you’re getting ready for Christmas. I still can’t believe it’s just three more days!!
Let me know if you give this hummus pizza a try.
Talk to you soon! Happy Holidays!!
