#25: Hummus and Roasted Veggie Pizza Recipe 5/29/10

Almost half way to my goal of 52 pizzas I still love the challenge of creating a non-traditional pizza without marinara. So after I made White Bean Pizza #21 I was really looking forward to my Hummus and Roasted Veggie Pizza recipe. The most common way to enjoy hummus is as a dip with veggies or on a wrap, but of course I thought, “Why not on a pizza?” Tribe is our brand of choice, and for this pizza I used the cracked chili pepper hummus because it has a little kick. One lesson I learned from making my White Bean pizza was that beans hold in heat when baked and a thin layer holds a lot of flavor. So to avoid burning my mouth again, I spread the hummus on pretty thin. Then I sprinkled on mozzarella cheese, and finished topping this tasty pizza with roasted zucchini, onion, and red pepper. I definitely recommend this pizza to anyone interested in trying looking for a healthier pizza or just something different!

  1. Your pizza creations just keep sounding better and better! Keep it up!

    P.S. I’d be more than happy to host you and your hubby in WI sometime this summer… we could make yummy food and chill out by the pool… and go for walks in the nature conservancy to burn off some calories… and make some more food… 🙂

    • Thanks Dawn, I will definitely be keeping up this project, I love it!!!

      We would love to come visit you but unfortunately it probably won’t be this summer. I don’t know if you heard yet but we bought a house and will be spending a lot of time on that this summer. Maybe next summer though. Our vacation plans for the next few years will include our favorite b&b in the Finger Lakes and trips to Indiana. I think a trip to WI would work out too, maybe on our way to Indy. Thanks for the offer! And thanks for your support on the blog! If you were here you could photograph my pizzas, you have a great eye for photography!

  2. Okay, THIS one has my name all over it. It sounds yummy.
    I also have a great recipe for hummus. I have actually had to mash the chick peas by hand recently because we broke our food processor. But mashing makes me feel more like I have EARNED the hummus. 😉
    I love following your pizza blog. Keep it up! When are you moving?

    • Thanks Hol! Will you send me your recipe please, I’d love to try it! I had to mash the beans for the White bean pizza, I did feel like I earned the deliciousness of it! We are moving the first week in July, I can’t wait!!!!
