Pizza Hummus Recipe

This pizza hummus is the best I’ve made in a long time!

I have a complete love affair with hummus. I can’t get enough of it. Whenever it’s around, I can pretty much survive off of it for days at a time if I allow myself to. And believe me, I’ve had days where that has happened. Maybe it’s not the most nutritionally complete way to end the day, but I can think of far worse things to survive on.

Mini Chef was insistent on helping me with this batch of clean eating sun-dried tomato and olive hummus. The evidence was all over his shirt, not to mention, evidence of playing in the dirt for at least an hour. But that’s my boy for you. He sure was proud of himself when it was done. The hummus, not his dirt pile. Although I’m sure he was mighty proud of that too.

We both shared this tasty, clean eating sun-dried tomato and olive hummus as a snack and pretty much ended up finishing it off for dinner too. I just can’t get enough hummus!

  1. Hummus with carrot sticks is my favourite. I like my hummus with lots of lemon juice. Mmm. 🙂

      Sarah – Definitely yummy with carrots!

  2. Tanya Gibson says:

    Oooh I’m making this, without a doubt! It looks & sounds divine! I have high blood pressure & have just ditched my sea salt as to not be tempted. Do you think just adding minced garlic cloves instead of the salt, and garlic powder would be a decent enough substitute?

      Tanya – It’s always a big flavor adjustment when you have to give up the salt. But I think it should still be pretty good without it.

      Well, he also loves Cheeze-It’s! If I can break him of that habit I’d be a happy camper! And if you have a “clean” recipe for homemade cheeze-it’s I’d love to have it!

  9. Looks delicious, my favorite humus is trader joes jalapeno and cilantro, which I have not attempted to make at home. Really should, the closest trader joes is 4 hours from us, so it is a rare treat!

    Did you use oil packed sun dried tomatoes or just the regular ones? Would love to make this!

    1. Anonymous says:

      Amanda – I used the oil packed variety, but I drained them and patted them as dry as I could with a paper towel.

    New to the clean eating world wondering how well this stuff freezes. I love it but would be easier to make lg batch and defrost for work snack size any thoughts?

    1. graciouspantry says:

      I’ve never frozen hummus, so not sure if it’s doable. You could make a half batch and just portion it out for the week.

    Since I found this recipe… I just can’t stand any “store” hummus. I just tried this version… MAN, You created a monster!! 🙂 THANKS!

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Haha!! Yay! Glad you enjoyed it!

  18. graciouspantry says:
