Flatbread with Hummus and Vegetables
This flatbread with hummus and vegetables is the perfect appetizer or meal. Filling, healthy, delicious, and easy to make.
I recently had the absolute pleasure of touring the Sabra* headquarters in Richmond, Virginia, and chickpea fields nearby.
Hey, look, it’s me on a chickpea farm! Farming chickpeas. Clearly. Wearing boots that took up half my suitcase. Necessities for chickpea farms.
And here are the little lovelies right off the plant…we even tried a few in this state. Chewy but tasty!
I came back inspired to create all sorts of Sabra hummus recipes (not to mention all the other great Sabra products — the yogurt dips are my favorite!).
This flatbread with hummus recipe may seem simple but it makes great lunch or a fun appetizer. Plus, let’s be real, we all know simple recipes are my favorite kind of recipes.
Flatbread “pizzas” with hummus and vegetables are easy to make, healthy, and so delicious. And they are totally customizable like many of my recipes.
Bake up your favorite pizza crust (bonus points for whole wheat!). Spread your favorite variety of Sabra hummus on the baked crust. Top with fresh, crunchy vegetables. Serve.
I patterned this recipe after one of my favorite Lebanese salads — fattoush. I top the Sabra Classic Hummus with cucumbers, tomatoes, radishes and parsley, ingredients found in a fattoush salad.
Flatbread with hummus and vegetables: beautiful, healthy, and wonderful tasting! A perfect vegetarian lunch, meatless main dish, or snack/appetizer.
If you’re in a hurry and don’t want to bake a pizza crust, this whole shebang would be great on top of a big ol’ pita.
Craving more hummus?
I like the fact that good-for-you hummus can be made into vinaigrettes and tortillas, don’t you? Here’s some creative ideas using hummus:
- 1 pizza crust, cooked and cooled
- 10 ounce package of Sabra Classic Hummus
- 1/4 English cucumber, cut into bite-size pieces
- 3 radishes, thinly sliced or julienned
- 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
- about 1/4 cup fresh parsley, torn or chopped
Make sure your baked pizza crust is cooled completely. Spread evenly with hummus. Top with vegetables. Cut and serve. Best served immediately, but store any leftovers in refrigerator.
- Feel free to sub out Classic hummus for your favorite Sabra variety.
- Have fun changing up this pizza with different vegetables.
- Use pita bread round instead of pizza crust.

Husband’s take: He loves this too!
Changes I would make: None are necessary, but as I mentioned, have fun with the toppings and the hummus flavor!
Difficulty: Easy peasy. And if it isn’t easy enough, you can always pick up a pre-baked pizza crust.
