So, with all that hummus last week I decided to make my Hummus Tortilla Pizzas Friday night. This is such a versatile, simple recipe, and if you love a thin pizza crust (like I do!), well, you can't get any thinner than a tortilla!
While I list ingredint toppings in this Vive le Vegan! recipe, you can really use what you like... it's pizza, after all! Here, I used a few rings of green pepper, chopped sun-dried tomatoes, sliced kalamata olives, chopped fresh pineapple, and black pepper. My gosh, the fresh pineapple was terrific, giving excellent flavor contrast to the saltier toppings. After baking, I finished with a sprinkle of chopped cilantro and drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil.
Next time you have a big batch of hummus to use up, customize your own tortilla pizzas!
Tip: Spread your hummus thicker on the edge of the pizza, and thinner in the middle. The tortilla shell sometimes gets a little soft in the centre if you assemble your pizzas in advance (be sure to refrigerate if doing so) and if your hummus is less dense. This helps keep the crust crispy (be sure to prebake the tortilla shells before adding toppings, as per recipe!)
