Pizza with Hummus and Herbs

Recipe from www.giantfood.com (slightly modified)

Creamy hummus and crunchy sprouts are a match made in heaven in this kid-friendly twist on pizza.

Ingredients

  • 1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
  • 4 (7 inch) pocketless pita bread
  • 1 (1.5 oz) pkg basil
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 1 (10 oz) tub spicy hummus
  • ½ cup alfalfa sprouts
  • 4 tbsp toasted pine nuts

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F. Spread tomato sauce evenly over the pita bread. Bake on 2 sheet pans until crust is crispy, 10-12 min.
  2. Meanwhile, coarsely chop the basil and halve the cherry tomatoes. Remove pita bread from the oven and spread hummus over each pizza. Top each with basil, tomatoes, sprouts, and pine nuts.

Tips

  • Toast your own pine nuts. All you need is a few minutes and a hot pan.
  • Finish pizzas with a pinch of salt and a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil for flavor and texture.
