Pizzas are absurdly easy to make, if you're not making the dough yourself. Which is why it's fun and quick to get some sort of flatbread, throw delicious toppings on, and call it a day.
I'm a fan of variations on a theme (also a fan of pizza and hummus) so this recipe, found in my roommate's giant Betty Crocker cookbook, was a perfect find that combined the two! You can find the original recipe online
, but I changed it up a little bit because let's face it, experimenting when cooking is fun. And I forgot to buy tomatoes.Ingredients
- Betty recommends pita bread, but I decided to go with onion flatbread. Why? You can never have too many onions.
- a jar a Kalamata olives, olives sliced into manageable pieces
- 1/3 a large onion, sliced
- a few cloves of garlic, minced
- a small package of hummus, either regular or garlic-flavored
- a small package of garlic and herb feta cheese
What a motley crew. Directions
- Heat oven to 400 degrees F
- Place two or more flatbread on a baking sheet covered in tin foil
- Mix extra minced garlic into hummus. Spread hummus generously on bread. Sprinkle crumbled feta cheese until hummus is covered.
- At this point, you can either follow the original recipe and put the flatbread in the oven and put the toppings on later, or you can do as I did and put the toppings in before. Either way, it'll taste good!
- Top each pizza with onion, spinach, and olives. Bake 10 minutes, until cheese is melted and bread is crispy.
Right out of the oven! Mmm.
For this particular recipe, I used two flatbreads, but definitely had enough ingredients left over for more. Hello tomorrow night's dinner! :) I like this recipe because it's quick, cheap, and delicious - so if you're ever in a rush and looking for something that's all of the above, try this!What's your favorite variation upon a pizza?
