Hummus Flatbread Pizza

Hummus Flatbread Pizza

Hello and happy new week to you all. It is a new week and I am ready to tackle the week with everything I have! So…let us kick it off right.

The kids will be returning to school in a couple weeks or less, and the temperature is definitely changing in our area. As much as I love summer, I am ready to welcome fall. There is just something beautiful about the bold colors fall brings. I am ready for my favorite fall foods to hit the shelves again at the grocery store.

On Sunday, I had this weird urge for hummus. That is something I do not usually make. Do not misunderstand me, I do like it a lot but it is not something I make often. In fact, it is this past Sunday was the first time in about 5 years or so since I have made Hummus. I woke up extra early on Sunday before the house woke up around 6:30 am to make a small batch. Moreover, I had pizza on my mind as well, so why not combine the two.

People always think you need tahini to make hummus. I made a small satisfying portion with the just a few ingredients from my pantry. I also like how hummus can be good any time of the day. Therefore, aside from making a small portion for myself, I also made Hummus Flatbread Pizza.

I have had a few fancy versions of hummus, with various flavor combinations, but my go to hummus flavor is the ones made with ingredients that are already in the pantry and refrigerator. I like the home version best because I know exactly what ingredients are in it, and the quantity I make is entirely up to me.

It is easy to make this Hummus Flatbread Pizza. Here is what you will need (you probably already have all of these ingredients):

Pizza Dough, store bought or create your own.

Garbanzos Beans (Chick Peas). All you need is one can for a small portion.

Olive Oil. Just 2 tablespoon

Garlic. Minced and ½ tsp.

Salt and pepper to taste

Water. Just 2 tablespoon

Cayenne pepper (optional). We love spicy food. Sometimes the spicier the meal is, the better the flavor. For this side/dip, I wanted it to have some kick. Especially if I am eating it as a quick snack with crackers during the day as I work.

Pizza toppings of your choice. I used tomatoes, spinach/mixed greens with a few shredded carrots.

Easy, right?

I like I have complete control of the nutritional value I add to it. I know the flavor I want, and I tailor it based on my preference. Not to mention chickpeas are full of fiber and protein.
