Mediterranean Hummus Pizza

I received free samples of Sabra mentioned in this post. By posting this recipe, I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by Sabra and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.

You know I love that May is Mediterranean Month. And if you know me well, you also know that I love pizza. Veggie pizza, cheese pizza, hummus pizza. Don’t know about hummus pizza? Oh, well, you should. It’s delicious.

This Mediterranean-style dish is super-simple and comes together in a matter of minutes. It’s like a salad, but better. And, it provides a whole grain and healthy dose of proteins, veggies and heart-healthy fats.

Simply brush a whole grain tortilla with a little olive oil and toast until crispy. Then, slather on a generous layer of hummus. I used Sabra Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus. You could use Sabra’s Caramelized Onion Hummus or their Classic Hummus, but the Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus imparted a bit of tomato-y tastiness. I topped with mixed greens, thinly sliced cucumbers and cherry tomatoes, black olives, an ounce of feta cheese, herbs and a drizzle of olive oil. Then, toast until warmed and you have a delicious salad pizza. I told you… it’s like a salad, but better.

I’m going to venture that it’s the hummus that makes it better than a salad. Hummus is a high-fiber plant-based protein that is delicious. It’s a perfect Mediterranean protein that pairs with all kinds of diets, including vegan and gluten-free. Plus, the protein in hummus can help with weight maintenance (thanks to the protein) and has even been shown to even help lower cholesterol.
