Pizza Hummus

Pizza hummus?  Yeah, I went there.  Hummus is one of my go to snacks.  I love regular hummus, black bean hummus, white bean, even lentil hummus.  It’s just so easy and so satisfying.  I was playing around in the kitchen trying to mimic a tomato basil hummus I had over the weekend, and realized I could totally tweak it and make it pizza like.  I was so pleasantly surprised and I totally recommend whipping this up!

Pizza Hummus:

  • 1 can organic chickpeas – rinsed, save half the liquid (about 1/4 cup)
  • 1/4 tahini
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp basil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1-2 tablespoons nutritional yeast (i used 1 1/2)
  • Juice from 1 small lemon
  • large pinch of salt & pepper
  • drizzle of olive oil

Toss everything in a food processor.  While ingredients are blending, drizzle in olive oil, enough to get it smooth and flowing.  Serve with fresh veggies or some whole grain pita chips.

Enjoy!

    I love pizzafying recipes. Another pizza flavoured thing I like to make are pizza quiche. Pastry shell, filled with mushroom, oregano, pepperoni (omit if vegetarian), black olives, onion, tomato paste, cheese and beaten egg. Easy crowd pleaser.
