Tomato and Hummus Pizza

I was in Australia less than a week ago, visiting my fiance's sister. She moved to Melbourne with her fiance, who is Australian. We had a great time - definitely going back!

While we were there, we had a pizza night. Everyone could make their own pizzas and I figured this would be a yummy combination. Not only did it turn out yummy, but it was also beautiful! I don't think it's a coincidence that the Vegan pizza was the most beautiful pizza out of the bunch. ;)

This is a Super Simple Series (SSS) recipe. You can however, turn it up a notch and make everything from scratch.

Tomato and Hummus Pizza

Time: 35 Minutes      |      Servings: 2      |      Difficulty: Low

2 prepared pizza crusts, 8-10"
1 medium-large container garlic hummus
4-5 ripe tomatoes, thinly sliced
1/2 cup fresh basil
olive oil, as needed
salt and pepper, as needed
1/4 red onion, chopped (optional)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees Celsius.

Spread hummud evenly onto pizza crusts. Top pizza with tomato slices. Sprinkle salt and pepper.  If desired, drizzle with olive oil.

Bake pizzas for 20-30 minutes, or until crusts are golden brown. Top with fresh basil and enjoy.

- If you don't have hummus on hand, or want to use another bean, feel free to puree navy beans, soy beans or anything else your heart contents in place of hummus.
- The possibilities are literally endless; top pizzas with whatever! :)
