Hummus and Salad Appetizer Pizza

Hummus and Salad Appetizer Pizza

Did you know that today is National Hummus Day? Actually, if you were to look inside my refrigerator on any random day of the year, you would likely conclude that every day was hummus day. One of my neighbors was over recently and, when I opened my fridge to get a beverage, he remarked on the amount of hummus in there. So, yeah, I celebrate hummus day often.

Typically I'll spread hummus on a sandwich instead of mayo or mustard but it mostly comes out as I'm cooking dinner. I prep cut vegetables every week to keep on hand for snacking so dipping them in the hummus is my "unofficial meal" while I'm cooking. If I have guests I still pretty much do the same thing only I might actually put the hummus in a nice bowl on the table.

The other day I picked up some great pre-made pizza dough rounds and I already knew from experience that it's great with hummus. I could serve that with a salad but why not go ahead and serve it AS the salad. I rolled it out to a rectangular shape, topped it with a generous amount of hummus (it will sink in a bit) and seasoned it with my favorite seasoning of all time, za'atar. When it came out of the oven I quickly topped it with some spicy arugula and a generous amount of tomatoes, cucumbers and radishes. Such a great flavor combo and yes, there might have been some extra dipping into the tubs of hummus. Enjoy!
