This is my go-to entertaining recipe. The combinations of toppings and spices are endless, and the pesto-hummus hybrid sauce is healthy and filling!
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
Mix 1 cup warm water (about 110 degrees) with 2 1/4 tsp. active dry yeast. Let stand 10 minutes.
In separate bowl mix 2 cups flour, 1 tsp. sugar, 1 tsp. salt, 2 Tbsp. Olive Oil and any spices/herbs (I usually add oregano, rosemary and red pepper flakes).
Mix together with water/yeast mixture and add more flour as needed before rolling out on greased pizza pan.
Blend in food processor, adding olive oil as you go: Handful fresh basil leaves, 3 cloves garlic, salt to taste, 1 can garbonzo beans, 1/2 cup food-processed almonds/cashews (raw), and any spices/herbs that you’d like.
Spread sauce on rolled out dough and add desired veggies (broccoli, red bell peppers, Roma tomatoes, thinly sliced baby potatoes, mushrooms, etc etc etc!). Spread any remaining sauce on top of veggies.
Bake for 35-40 minutes and enjoy!
