As a vegetarian, hummus ends up being a pretty big staple in my diet. I often pair it with grape tomatoes and sliced veggies for a satisfying snack.
While this stand-by is tasty, I've recently been thinking up new, innovative ways to use the ingredient. So I came up with pita hummus pizza idea. The pizza with hummus is pretty simple to make and combines a bunch of my favorite ingredients.
Did I mention this white pizza is super yummy, too? The beauty of making pita bread pizzas is you don't need any pizza dough or cooking spray.
How to Top a Hummus Pizza
Mushrooms are one of my favorite foods on the planet, so I had to add some to this pita pizza. To make this vegan pita pizza, I sautéed up some shiitake slices and also caramelized onions, roasted some pine nuts, and heated grape tomatoes for toppings. The final finishing touch? Fresh oregano.
I have to say my creation is delish. And with Super Bowl Sunday around the corner, I'm thinking I'll make these for a game-day get together with friends.
If you want to add some non-vegan ingredients to the pizza, you could go with ricotta cheese or fresh mozzarella for a cheese pizza. I would wait until the cheese is melted to add the sauteed veggies.
Here are additional vegan topping ideas:
- red onion
- sun dried tomatoes
- artichoke hearts
- fresh basil
- red pepper flakes
