Hummus Pizza

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I used to get pita sandwiches stuffed with hummus, cucumbers, tomatoes and onions. I LOVED them! So I had an idea. What about putting those toppings on a pizza crust? Bake the crust first, spread it with hummus and then add the the vegetabes. Olives would be good on this too.

I find tahini in the Middle Eastern foods section of my supermarket. In a pinch I have have used creamy peanut butter as a sub and it has worked nicely. Not exactly the same flavor, but a good alternative if there is no tahini available. Here is the recipe for hummus that I use:

Hummus

1 16oz can garbanzo beans (chick peas), drained and rinsed well

1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

1 to 2 cloves of garlic

2 Tbsp tahini

Drain garbanzo beans. In a food processor or blender mix with lemon juice, garlic, and tahini. Blend until smooth. If necessary, can add up to a 1/4 cup water to make the mixture smooth.

I've never actually made it. I just buy the stuff. I hear it is easy to make, but when my mom made it, it was not edible. I don't know if she used bad tahini or too much tahini or what. Tahini is sold (at least around here) in one of two places. With the peanut butter, or in the refrigerated section. I've also heard it is easy to make by grinding sesame seeds in the coffee grinder or Magic Bullet.

Why are you afraid to try deli hummus? Hummus should be quite safe, unless it's right out there in the open with gluten nearby.

The only hummus I hesitate to buy is the stuff on the cold food bar at Central Market. It's right by the wheat bread.

Just afraid off cc. I know it's probably safe, but I always prefer to make my own everything.

I like to put pesto on a pizza shell. It's really good with some cold salmon, lettuce and tomatoe, and a little smoked provalone. I'm going to try your hummis recipe using PB. Interesting.

I use this recipe too-- I do keep the water from the can in reserve and use that instead of tap water. Also use more garlic and someitmes lime instead of lemon depending whats on the trees outside. This is a great base to experiment with by adding some tomato, artichoke heart event he baby corn sometimes which is my grad daughters favorite.

I never thought to use lime and I love artichoke hearts. I can't wait to try these combinations! I don't know why I never thought to use the water from the can. That is brilliant:) Thanks for the ideas I look forward to trying the variations.

I am eating this now and it's soooo good! I started with Ener-G rice pizza shells. Topped with olive oil and baked. Cooled slightly then covered with some really good hummus, sliced tomatoes, white onions and Kalamatta olives. Can't wait to make this again! I like it so much I might have it for a bedtime snack. Mmmm...
