Mediterranean Grilled Pizza

I have a thing for hummus. A big thing. We’re talking I can’t buy a package at the store and not eat it all in a day kind of thing. What can I say whether it’s on veggies, chips, spoons, or fingers I just can’t stop. You know what else hummus is good on? Pizza.

What could be better than a chewy, gluten free, flatbread crust cooked fresh on the grill. Said crust slathered in hummus and covered with veggies sounds like a good option to me. This has all the flavors of a greek salad, piled high on a bed of garlicky hummus, and quickly grilled for summertime perfection.

To make a pizza crust I typically use King Arthur or Namaste pizza crust mixes, according to package directions. I like to make enough for 4 thin, 6-inch crusts, pre-bake them for half the recommended time, and then freeze the ones I’m not using for a quick dinner at a late time (I’ve kept them in a freezer bag for up to a month). They can go straight from the freezer to the oven of the grill.

Mediterranean Grilled Pizza 

Makes 2, 6-inch pizzas

Time: 15 minutes

Recipe labels

Ingredients 

2 Gluten Free Pizza crusts (a pita or a naan flatbread would work well too)

1/2 cup hummus (I’ve been loving this one from Annie’s Eats lately)

1 small tomato, diced

1/2 cucumber, diced

1/4 red onion thinly sliced or diced

4-6 kalamata olives, sliced

2 oz Feta Cheese, crumbled

Preheat your grill to medium heat, and make sure your racks are clean! Place crusts on grill for two minutes on one side. Remove from heat and spread hummus evenly over the grilled side of each crust. Return to grill for another two minutes to cook other side. When crust is brown and crispy around the edges remove from heat and top evenly with veggies and crumbled cheese. Serve immediately.

The nice thing about pizza is it is so easy to customize. I don’t like olives or onions, so I didn’t put any on mine (even if they’re traditional in Greek salad). Feel free to throw on whatever veggies/cheese you like, it’s really all about the grilled crust and the melty hummus anyways 😉

Do you like grilled pizza? What’s your favorite summer pizza topping?

    Hi Sarah, It’s so exciting to have another celiac at the fiesta! I actually brought mini italian pizza bites a couple of weeks ago. I love the idea of putting humus on a pizza. I can’t have the feta cheese due to a milk allergy, but it sounds delicious without it as well! Happy fiesta-ing, and have a wonderful weekend! 🙂

    Hi Sarah, slathering pizza in hummus sounds divine, I can’t believe I’ve never tried it, since we always have hummus around the house! This pizza looks like a fabulous dinner idea! 😀
