Pizza Hummus

What’s a vegetarian food blog without a hummus recipe?

I suppose that today, hello veggy! becomes fully initiated! After receiving a food processor for a birthday gift last year, I can’t actually recall buying hummus since. I still like to peruse the dip aisle, however, and I’m always amazed by the variety of flavours popping up on grocery store shelves. Edamame hummus sounds enticing, as does a sweet potato variety, but I’m too hooked on this recipe to deviate!

Here’s a glimpse into my thought process while creating this recipe:

(sings) Hummus, hummus, I love hummus. (remembers bag of sundried tomatoes purchased at bulk barn) Hmm, maybe I should toss some of those in. And I have some basil that’s on the way out… might as well use it up!

From this attempt to use up ingredients, Pizza Hummus was born! Isn’t it funny how some of the best recipes are created completely by mistake? Like any type of hummus, it can be enjoyed as a dip for crackers and veggies, or in a sandwich or wrap. If you like it enough, don’t be afraid to just eat spoonfuls on their own, or use it as a topping for ice cream (I may have been kidding on the last one, but if you do I won’t judge ;))!

  7. This looks awesome! I love sun dried tomatoes almost as much as I love hummus. So together, I bet they’re amazing.

    My favourite hummus flavour is actually just plain. Boring, but so so good!

  8. I love my hummus smooth (without texture) with loads of tahini….just your standard Israeli hummus in Europe :)

    Pizza and hummus? I’ve never tried this flavor before, but I imagine it would be tasty on a pizza or sandwich! I’m missing the food processor, I wish there’s such thing as a travel food processor with international plugs.
