This vegan hummus pizza is a quick meal that, like any pizza, can hold an unlimited amount of toppings. The sky (or fridge) is the limit for this versatile vegan pizza.
With it’s creamy hummus topping, one does not miss the cheese on traditional dairy pizzas. As for soy cheese, I have not tried any in years and don’t plan to. It’s better to not even go there for me.
I have made this scrumptious creation on a number of crusts. Recently I came across a large flat bread called Barbari Bread.
It does not have milk or oil. It bakes up crispy and tasty. The only problem, if you call it a problem, is it is so huge it does not fit on any of my pans. So, I just put the pizza straight on the oven racks. This makes for an extra crispy crust. Or, it could be cut into pieces and placed on cookie sheets.
First start with a great crust, be it home made flat bread or traditional pizza crust.
Spread your crust with your favorite flavor of hummus. For a great home made hummus recipe see this post.
Saute vegetables of your liking.
I like a mixture of Brussels sprouts, onions and mushrooms. It’s easy to add the vegetable you have on hand. Saute veggies with rice vinegar, lemon pepper, salt, fresh lemon juice. This brings out the lemony flavor of the hummus.
Layer the sauted veggies onto the hummus and sprinkle with chopped green onions. You can sprinkle some nutritional yeast on before (or after) baking.
Notice in the ingredients list below, I did not use quantities. It all depends on the size of your crust and what vegetables you have on hand. Just use what you have. Left over veggies work great spiced up with a little lemon juice and/or rice vinegar.
