Hummus Flatbread Pizza - a great appetizer or a meal! On RachelCooks.com

I recently had the absolute pleasure of touring the Sabra* headquarters in Richmond, Virginia and also getting a tour of the chickpea fields.

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 hummus recipes (not to mention all their other great products — the yogurt dips are my favorite!). This recipe may seem simple but it’s a great lunch or a fun appetizer. Plus, let’s be real, we all know simple recipes are my favorite kind of recipes. This flatbread is easy to make, healthy, and so delicious. And it’s totally customizable like many of my recipes are.

Bake up your favorite pizza crust (bonus points for whole wheat!). Spread on your favorite variety of Sabra hummus. Top with fresh, crunchy vegetables. Serve.

EASY.

I likened mine to one of my favorite Lebanese salads — fattoush. I mean, it’s not a perfect match to the salad of course, but I topped the Sabra Classic Hummus with cucumbers, tomatoes, radishes and parsley. It’s beautiful, healthy and clearly tastes wonderful. 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.

Verdict: Loved this as a healthy, filling, easy meal.

Husband’s take: He loved this too!

Changes I would make: None are necessary, but as I mentioned, have fun with the toppings and the hummus flavor!
