This Pizza with Hummus uses basic, easy to find ingredients. Here's what you'll need:
- Hummus - You can prepare this recipe with homemade hummus or store bought. I used plain, but different flavors would also be delish.
- Veggies - This recipe calls for a combination of bell peppers, onions, and grape tomatoes. The best thing about these vegetables is that you can put them on the pizza raw, saving lots of prep time!
- Olives - Briny kalamata olives are the perfect compliment to the fresh veggies, lemony hummus, and fresh veggies.
- Feta - While cheese is optional (this pizza super tasty and 100% vegan without it), feta cheese adds a wonderful Mediterranean / Greek flavor you're sure to love.
- Pizza Dough - Look for balls of pizza dough in your grocery store, or make your own from scratch.
This recipe is easy to customize with different veggies and toppings (find all my tips below). Plus, you can easily leave off the feta for a vegan / dairy free version that's just as delicious.
It's also a great way to use up leftover hummus. You can even make it with frozen hummus (thaw first)!
You'll Also Need
Of course, you'll need a pizza pan. I have this 14-inch one from USA Pan, and it is the absolute best! Totally nonstick, but without any of the yucky chemicals. I've had mine for years, and after countless pizzas, not a one has stuck to the pan.
How to Make Hummus Pizza
Ready to start cooking? You'll find a detailed recipe card below, but here's an overview of the steps:
- Prepare crust. Lightly oil your pizza pan (or spray with nonstick spray). Press the dough out to the edges of the pan. Then bake the crust for five minutes.
- Spread hummus on pizza. Next, you'll cover the pre-baked crust with the hummus "pizza sauce". Leave about a one-inch border.
- Top with veggies, olives, and feta. Spread your toppings evenly over the hummus. I recommend adding the tomatoes cut side up, that way any liquid they release evaporates rather than making the pizza soggy.
- Bake pizza. Finally, you'll bake the pizza until the toppings are hot and the crust is golden brown. It should take about 15 to 20 minutes.
Time to dig in! Doesn't this colorful Hummus Pizza look so amazing? And it tastes even better than it looks ... you are going to love every bite!
Tip: Let your dough sit at room temperature for 30 minutes (if it's been refrigerated) to make it easier to work with. If your pizza dough contracts when stretching onto the pan, let it rest for few minutes before continuing. Resting relaxes the gluten, making it easier to spread.
Once you've mastered this basic Hummus Veggie Pizza recipe, you can start experimenting! Here are some easy ideas to try:
- Vegan - To make this recipe vegan / dairy free, just skip the cheese or substitute your favorite plant based cheese, like this vegan feta!
- Veggies - Swap out the peppers, onions, and tomatoes for different vegetables, like zucchini, mushrooms, or sun dried tomatoes. I started with raw veg, but Roasted Vegetables or Grilled Vegetables would be delish, too.
- Hummus - I used my traditional Hummus recipe to make this pizza, but other flavors would work great, too. Try it with my Roasted Garlic Hummus, Sun Dried Tomato Hummus, Olive Hummus, or Roasted Red Pepper Hummus, too.
- Crust - Don't have any pizza dough? You can make this recipe with a pre-baked pizza crust (like Boboli), flatbread, pita bread, or even naan instead. For a gluten free option, try this handy mix.
- Extra Sauce - Try drizzling the finished pizza with some Pesto, Romesco Sauce, or even Buffalo Sauce for an extra pop of flavor.
With all its yummy veggies, this homemade pizza makes a great one dish meal! If you'd like to round out your dinner, pair it with some Garlic Bread or a quick, delicious salad, like this Kale Salad, Chopped Salad, or this Shredded Brussels Sprout Salad.
Store leftovers in an airtight container in your refrigerator. To reheat, warm gently in your microwave or air fryer. If the hummus dries out while reheating, add a small drizzle of olive oil.
