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. It's pretty simple to make and combines a bunch of my favorite ingredients. Did I mention this pizza with mushrooms and onions is super yummy, too?

Mushrooms are one of my favorite foods on the planet, so I had to add some to this pita pizza. To make this pizza with mushrooms, 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.

Bonus: These mini pizzas are great to serve during Heart Health Month, since they're heart healthy, according to the guidelines set forth by the American Heart Association. Each portion (half a hummus pizza) is low in both sodium and saturated fat and provides 3 grams of fiber, 12 percent of the daily value.

Ingredients:

  • 6 4-inch whole-wheat pitas
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups shiitake mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 large Vidalia onion, sliced
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts
  • 3 Tbsp. fresh oregano, torn
  • 3/4 cup Sabra Classic Hummus, divided

 

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. Place pita bread on non-stick baking sheet and toast for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, heat 1/4 cup water in a small pan over medium-high heat. Add onion slices; spread onions evenly in the pan, stirring occasionally, 5-6 minutes. Once the liquid is absorbed and the onions begin to brown, stir frequently until they're caramelized. Set aside. In a small pan over medium heat, heat olive oil. Add mushroom slices, stirring occasionally. Once mushrooms are almost cooked through, about 5-6 minutes, add tomatoes. Cook an additional 2-3 minutes. Meanwhile, increase oven temperature to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Place pine nuts on baking sheet and toast 8-10 minutes, tossing once. Spread each pita with 2 Tbsp. hummus, then top with onions, mushrooms, and tomatoes. Add pine nuts and oregano. Slice pizzas, and enjoy. Serves 12.
