If you like hummus, you will LOVE this hummus pizza with artichokes, spinach, and olives. It’s one of our favorite pizza recipes around here! The recipe for this hummus pizza was kindly sponsored by NOA.
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. Together with my mom, I spent three weeks traveling from India to Thailand 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! Right now, they offer four different spreads:
- hummus with herbs (my favorite!)
- lentil curry with quinoa
- kidney bean red bell pepper with quinoa
You can either just eat them with bread or veggie sticks or you could get a bit more creative and use them for pasta dishes. I also love eating them with potatoes and salad. All of the four spreads are packed with protein, which makes them perfect for vegetarians and vegans.
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 pre-made pizza dough instead. However, the recipe for the pizza 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!!

Hummus Pizza with Veggies
For the pizza dough:
- 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon instant yeast
- 1 pinch sugar
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 cup lukewarm water
For the toppings:
- 1 cup hummus
- 8-10 mushrooms, sliced
- 1 handful fresh spinach
- 1/2 cup black olives
- 1/2 cup artichoke hearts in oil, roughly chopped
- 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, cut into halves
- 1/2 red onion, cut into rings
- 2 teaspoons dried oregano
- red pepper flakes, to taste (optional)
- First make the dough: In a medium-sized bowl, combine all dry ingredients. Then add the oil and the lukewarm water. Knead with your hands until you got a smooth dough. Form into a ball and cover the bowl with a damp cloth or plastic wrap. Place into a warm room and let it rise for about an hour until it has doubled in size.
- Move the dough to a flour-dusted surface, divide the dough into two balls, and form it into two pizzas using your hands. Alternatively, you could also make one larger pizza.
- Evenly spread the pizzas with the hummus and add the pizza toppings on top. Sprinkle with oregano and red pepper flakes. Bake for about 20 minutes at 350 °F. The baking time can vary depending on the oven you use.
