Homemade Vegetarian Hummus Pizza - Food, Fun, and Happiness

Homemade Vegetarian Hummus Pizza

Making homemade pizza allows you complete control of ingredients that will go on the pie. In this recipe, the inspiration is a handful of online sources that use hummus as the sauce instead of tomato-based pizza sauce. It's also vegetarian, but I could see others adding bacon bits, eggs, chicken slices, or similar toppings to their taste. The crust is also homemade from Annie's Eats and yields 2 medium-sized pizzas.

Vegetarian Pizza w/ Garlic Hummus as Sauce topped w/ Onions, Tomatoes, Kale, Olives, Feta Cheese, and Mozzarella. Lots of Mozzarella! Homemade Crust, too.

Ingredients for the Pizza (adapted from Hot Polka Dot)

  • 1 cup garlic hummus
  • 2 cups mozzarella, grated
  • 1 cup kale
  • 1/2 red onions, sliced
  • 3 tomatoes, sliced
  • 1/3 cup black olives, sliced
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled


Ingredients for the Crust (source: Annie's Eats)

  • ½ cup warm water
  • 2¼ tsp. instant yeast
  • 4 cups (22 oz.) bread flour, plus more for dusting
  • 1½ tsp. salt
  • 1¼ cup water, at room temperature
  • 2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil


DIRECTIONS

Measure the warm water into a 2-cup liquid measuring cup. Sprinkle the yeast over the top. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the bread flour and salt, mixing briefly to blend. Measure the room temperature water into the measuring cup with the yeast-water mixture. With the mixer on low speed, pour in the yeast-water mixture as well as the olive oil. Mix until a cohesive dough is formed. Switch to the dough hook. Knead on low speed until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a lightly oiled bowl, turning once to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise until doubled in size, 1½-2 hours.

Press down the dough to deflate it. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface. Divide the dough into two equal pieces. Form each piece of dough into a smooth, round ball. (If freezing the dough, wrap in plastic wrap and freeze at this point.) Cover with a damp cloth. Let the dough relax for at least 10 minutes but no longer than 30 minutes.

To bake, preheat the oven and pizza stone to 500° F for at least 30 minutes. Transfer the dough to your shaping surface, lightly sprinkled with cornmeal. Shape the dough with lightly floured hands. Brush the outer edge lightly with olive oil. Top as desired. Bake until the crust is golden brown, and cheese is bubbling, 8-12 minutes.

When the crust is ready, spread garlic hummus evenly. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of mozzarella evenly the best you can. Spread out kale, onions, tomatoes, olives, and feta cheese. Finally, top it off with another layer of 1/2 cup mozzarella. Repeat steps for second pizza. Bake in preheated oven at 375 deg F for 10-12 minutes. Serve and enjoy.
