Love pizza but can’t stomach all that dairy? Hello, hummus! Hummus makes a great replacement for all the cheese normally on top of a pizza. Slather it on a pita, top it with your favorite veggies and you’ll have a meal in minutes. In this particular recipe, I was simply using up veggies I had in the fridge that were going to go bad if I didn’t consume them soon.
These pita pizzas could be topped with whatever ingredients you’d like. You could do a Mexican version with tomato, avocado, black beans and garnish with fresh cilantro. Maybe do it Mediterranean-style with sun-dried tomato, basil, olives and peppers. There are so many things you can put on any pizza, mini-size or not – using a pita results in far fewer calories since there’s much less crust. Enjoy!
Hummus of your choice, plain or flavored
Whole wheat pitas
Veggies of your choice, chopped or sliced (however you like them on your pizza)
Flavored oil or regular olive oil
Spread hummus on a pita round. Top with veggies of choice (here, I chose zucchini slices and tomato). Drizzle the oil (I used a salad/sandwich oil with Italian seasonings). Bake in the toaster oven on 400° for 10 minutes or until pita is crisp and the veggies are soft.
Make as many as you can! Yum!
