Pepperoni Pizza 6 Layer Hummus Dip
This pepperoni pizza 6 layer hummus dip is not only great for parties, it’s also perfect for school lunches!
There is only one thing better than dip and that’s LAYERED dip.
If there’s a gathering, party, or get-together, you’ll find me by the dips. I really can’t resist the classics – hummus, spinach dip, queso, guacamole, french onion dip, or dill dip for vegetables. Basically I love anything I can stick a cracker, piece of bread, or a vegetable in.
When Sabra asked me to create a recipe with their new Pizza Flavored Hummus Singles (yes, you read that right – a dream come true!), I decided to keep it as a dip, but jazz it up a bit. With back-to-school season right around the corner (but we are NOT going to talk about that any more!!!), this dip is perfect for lunches too.
(Small PSA – make sure to teach your kids that there are food allergies other than peanut – some kids are allergic to sesame seeds. Tahini, an tasty and important ingredient in hummus, is made from sesame seeds. Make sure they know that what might be delicious to them might be deadly to others. And while they shouldn’t miss out, please teach them to always wash their hands after enjoying the contents of their lunchbox. Make sure they know not to share utensils or napkins. On behalf of all mommas of children with food allergies, thank you!)
So, back to hummus. My little man is not allergic to sesame seeds unless he eats them (his allergy is not an inhaled-type), so the rest of us carefully (verrrry carefully) enjoy hummus from time to time in our home. I love this new flavor from Sabra – it has all the great flavors of pizza but with the punch of protein that hummus offers.
It’s available in the single size which makes it perfect for lunches. If you want to make this recipe for parties, just get out a little spatula and pile the contents of the single size hummus packages up on a serving tray.
Let’s get down to business and talk about the layers!
- Hummus, duh. Spread it into a nice smooth layer.
- Pizza sauce. You can buy it or make your own.
- Shredded mozzarella cheese.
- Pepperoni. I used miniature ones, but you could cut up regular sized sliced pepperoni.
- Grated parmesan cheese.
- Fresh basil! Because it’s actually growing in my garden!
If you’re feeling like you need a few more layers, some vegetables would be great. Chopped mushrooms, red bell peppers, or chopped spinach would be good choices.
Alright folks, that’s all I have to say. Go get your dippity dip on with this 6 layer hummus dip.
