Garden Hummus Pizza

Several weeks ago I tucked myself onto a plane and headed to Virginia to meet up with the folks at Sabra Hummus. They’d invited me to their neck of the woods for a tour of the factory, and a peek inside their company headquarters and, seeing as how I love Sabra already, I was more than happy to oblige.

Once I returned home from the trip, I got myself on a serious hummus kick. While visiting the Sabra Headquarters, we were treated to a taste test opportunity, where we licked a spoonful of fresh chickpeas, then a spoonful of unadulterated tahini, then a scoop of Sabra hummus, fresh off the mixing line. I don’t think I’d ever considered how entirely I love hummus until that moment. The creaminess of the flavor. The perfect combination of texture and flavor. That savory, rich, buttery goodness that happens when you combine the most basic of ingredients.

Only, here’s the thing. Sabra doesn’t just combine basic ingredients. They combine the best ingredients. Carefully chosen chickpeas, tahini, garlic. The company began making their product in small batches, and though their factory operations have expanded the output, each batch is still impeccably prepared. It’s a happy thing, that hummus.

Upon returning home, I filled my fridge with Sabra hummus, salsa, guac. I wanted it all sitting there just in case inspiration struck. Sure enough, while feeding the troves of fellow evacuees during last month’s canyon fire, I had all the right ingredients to create a simple, quick, absurdly delicious Hummus Pizza.

With a rich base of perfectly flavored Sabra Hummus, tons of fresh veggies, the quick smoosh of a prepared pizza crust, and an incredible Basil-Jalapeno Drizzle, this recipe is one you’ll return to again and again.

Not unlike my plans for those containers of Sabra awaiting me at the grocery store. I shall be back, dear hummus. Oh, yes indeed, I shall!

Garden Hummus Pizza

Yield: 8 slices

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes

Spreading hummus all over a golden pizza crust makes for a lovely start to a dinner. But, top it with tons of fresh veggies, and a ever-so-slightly spicy drizzle, and suddenly this recipe goes from fab to rah-rah-radical in minutes! A simple, delicious way to get your veggies while enjoying the tremendous flavor of Sabra hummus.

Ingredients:

1 premade pie crust, cooked until golden and then cooled
1 1/2 cups SABRA Hummus
1 cup chopped sweet red and yellow bell peppers
1 cup cucumbers, diced
1 can black olives, drained
1/2 cup purple onions
3 cups fresh spinach, chopped
2/3 cup olive oil
1/2 cup fresh parsley, loosely packed
1/2 cup fresh basil, loosely packed
1 large clove garlic
1" piece of fresh jalapeno, deseeded
3/4 teaspoon salt

Directions:

Spread hummus on top of the cooked, cooled pizza crust. Depending on the size of your pizza crust, you may need to add more hummus. Just make sure you've got a good, 1/4" thick schmear of it all over the base of the crust.

Top hummus with peppers, cuucmbers, black olives, purple onions, and fresh spinach.

In a blender or mini food processor, combine the olive oil, parsley, basil, garlic, jalapeno and salt. Puree. Drizzle over the pizza.

Serve pizza and enjoy!

    Mmm, I love Sabra hummus. A few years ago at a local street fair, there was a Sabra booth where you could make a plate with different flavors of hummus and amazing toppings like roasted peppers… best booth ever. I never would have thought to make hummus pizza… what a delicious, veggie-filled meal! I’m glad to see you posting recipes again. I hope everything has settled down and you are safe at home.

    In the ingredients list you have “pie crust” instead of “pizza crust”, just thought you might want to know! Otherwise awesome recipe, it reminded me that I brought hummus for lunch, woo!!

    This is heaven on a pizza! I eat hummus almost everyday…with veggies, on sandwich wrap, etc. I’ve never considered putting it on pizza. Great idea, Brooke!
