Healthy Pizza with Beet Hummus
Who's down for a pizza party?
This show stopper of a pizza will have people coming out of the woodworks looking for a bite! I mean, how beautiful is this thing?
Let me introduce you to this healthy, vegan Beet Hummus Pizza... Soon to be your new bestie!
This pizza is made on a whole-wheat, vegan crust. It is then topped with chunky beet hummus, fresh tomatoes, garlic, and a delicate arugula salad.
I'm all about homemade pizza these days and it's really a walk in the park to do that now, since Trader Joe's has an awesome (and cheap) vegan pizza dough. It's usually stored right next to their beet hummus, which we will also be using in this recipe. #TraderJoesBiggestFan
*Again, TJ's is not paying me to write this LOL. I know my blog looks like an ad space for them lately but I just think they are the bomb.com! And sharing (knowledge) is caring!*
The great part about having the crust taken care of and ready to go is that you can focus all of your energy on creating a delicious combination of toppings. I find it to be really fun and therapeutic actually!
This particular blend is earthy and sweet, mostly thanks to the beet hummus. There are waves of balsamic vinegar and little kicks of spice from the chili flakes. The arugula topping is just icing on the cake!
I got the idea to put salad on my pizza after our visit to Flora Farms in Cabo. They put so much salad on the pizza you could hardly see it! But I fell in love with it and I'm not sure I'll ever turn back!
I hope you will make this pizza! It will only take about 25 minutes (total!) of your time and I promise, promise, promise you are going to LOVE it.
