Pizza, hummus and pita all in one? Sign me up please! But seriously, these Hummus Pita Pizzas are one of the of the easiest ways to enjoy a vegan pizza at home.
Prep your dough (aka pita bread) by taking it out of the package. Ok, step one done.

Lastly, grab your favorite toppings and load them up. Pop it in the oven and wait 10 minutes. Is this easy or is this easy?
Need some topping ideas?
I am sharing 3 different ways to make these Hummus Pita Pizzas today - traditional, pesto and spicy. Make one of these, make them all, or pick your own.
I think these pizzas would also go good with some sort of dipping sauce - buffalo, vegan ranch, bbq. I love a good sauce, so feel free to sauce these up to your liking.
Not sure what kind of hummus to use?
I went with traditional, but depending on your toppings, you could do a cilantro hummus, roasted red pepper hummus or spicy hummus. You could also make your own (check out my recipe for Zesty Hummus, if you are looking for a place to start).
I love eating these as a meal, but you could also whip up a bunch of them and serve them as a party appetizer. Finger foods are the best kinds of food.
