Greek Hummus Pizza

It seems like in the summer we do burgers 101 ways on the weekend, as it gets cooler and turns to fall we move to pizza 101 ways. This is my latest vegetarian favorite.  My kids ate hummus on a pizza and didn't cry, so I'd call that a success!

I highly recommend roasting the veggies ahead of time so that when it's time to make the pizza you can just throw it all together!  Use any hummus that you love and if you're not into garlic you could just leave it off.  We love garlic and can't ever have too much of it!  Lately I've been making my own crust using the Fleischmann's Pizza Crust yeast because it's no-rise and super quick, but I still love the Trader Joe's dough ball--use whatever!

Greek Hummus Pizza
  • 1 ball pizza dough
  • 2 roma tomatoes, sliced
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced
  • 1 bell pepper, sliced (or 1/2 of two different colored bell peppers)
  • 1/2 c. chopped artichoke hearts
  • 1 small can sliced black olives, drained well
  • 1/3 c. hummus
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3/4 c. mozzarella
  • 1/3 c. crumbled feta

Preheat the oven to 450 and layer the tomatoes, onion and pepper slices on a cookie sheet.  Bake for 40 minutes, stirring a couple times in the middle.  Remove roasted veggies from the oven and set aside for the pizza.  When you're ready to make the pizza preheat the oven to 425 and roll the dough out on a stone.  Pre-bake the crust for 7 minutes.  While the crust is baking, mix the hummus and garlic together in a small bowl.  Remove crust from oven and spread the hummus over the top.  Layer on the veggies, artichoke hearts and olives.  Sprinkle the cheeses on the top and bake another 10-12 minutes or until the cheese is melted and crust is golden brown.
