Homemade Hummus Pizza and Quick Pita Pizza

Tonight I made pizza from scratch. It was a pretty crazy thing to do on a day like today, but somehow, I did it. It helped that last night, I made extra pasta sauce and hummus for dinner.
I used my Simply Easy Homemade Hummus as my 'cheese' for our pizza. I made this 100% whole wheat pizza crust which miraculously turned out very good even though the yeast I used expired a long long time ago....(that's not recommended). But we did have to bake it about 5 minutes longer than recommended.

Tip: Use grits/polenta (or white corn meal) instead of flour on the pizza stone to keep dough from sticking
Homemade Hummus Pizza
- whole wheat pizza dough
- homemade hummus
homemade marinara sauce 
- any toppings you want!

1. Just spread however much hummus you like on the dough 
2. Top that with your marinara sauce
3. Bake according to the crust instructions 
4. Top the pizza with your favorite veggies for the last few minutes of baking time

 Quick Pita Pizza
For when you are short on time (which is probably most days) 
-whole wheat pita bread for crust 
-homemade or store bought hummus
-homemade or store bought marinara or pasta sauce 
any toppings you want!

1. Top pitas with hummus (and then marinara sauce)and veggies
2. Bake for 12-15 min. in a 400 degree oven

Tip: Heat up your marinara sauce and serve in a bowl for dipping or spooning over the pizza. Cut pita pizzas into triangles and serve around the bowl of sauce to make it into a party on a plate!
