Garlic Hummus Pizza

In Pursuit of Pizza

Today’s experimental pizza was a bit of a divergence for us. It’s a vegetarian pizza and I used a recipe on as a base and added my own touches. We definitely liked it. I’d give it at least 4.5 stars; I’m not sure why I withhold 5 stars. Maybe just a tad more tweaking. I need to think on it.

Garlic Hummus Pizza
1 whole wheat pizza dough (Trader Joe’s, 16 oz)
1 cup garlic hummus spread
1 1/2 cups sliced bell peppers, any color (I used red)
1 cup broccoli florets
1/2 cup sliced black olives
2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese, or combination of cheeses–your choice

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
Roll out pizza crust and place on a pizza pan or baking sheet.
Spread a thin layer of hummus over the crust.
Arrange sliced peppers, black olives and broccoli over the hummus, and top with shredded cheese.
Bake for 10 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until the crust is golden brown and cheese is melted in the center. Slice and serve.
