You know I can get pretty creative with my ingredients and from time to time, my imagination comes up with something so good it’s worth sharing with you. I mean, if you are reading this post, you are probably a hummus fan already, which is why I want to convince you to try it warm.

Warm hummus? Oh yes, some of my warm hummus recipes are life changing. Besides trying these Mediterranean pizzas, I want you to consider trying my Hummus Baked Chicken, Hummus Tostadas, and my cheesy Hummus Spinach Dip. And to bring you today’s recipe, I’ve partnered with Sabra, a staple in my fridge.

This recipe is really the warm version of something many of us do quite often; that is, eat hummus with pita bread or flat bread and top it with feta and Kalamata olives. The thing is, that because we nearly always cut up the pita into triangles, it’s nearly always served as a snack. This way, it becomes a meal. Watch how quick these come together.

What I love about Sabra’s hummus is the variety of flavors available. Gone are the days that plain hummus and veggies are eaten for snack only since clearly, hummus is not just for dipping!

By changing up the hummus variety used as a base, you can change up the flavor of these pizzas. If you are a garlic fan, try the Roasted Garlic and for a classic Italian-inspired base, try the Garden Vegetable. Do you love roasted red peppers? Use the Roasted Red Pepper variety (like I did today), the smoky flavor really shines through in this recipe.

If you are anything like me and love toppings, you load your pizza with as many as possible, right? For this recipe, I loaded it up with feta cheese and Kalamata olives. The mozzarella is optional, but I highly suggest it if you like the cheesy texture on top of your pizzas.
