Description

For this Hummus and Grilled Vegetable Pizza recipe, we marinated zucchini, yellow squash and Japanese eggplant in olive, lemon, garlic, coriander, cumin and ginger, and threw them on the grill till tender. We spread our homemade hummus over store bough crust instead of cheese for a healthier twist and a boost of protein (need a shortcut? Store bought hummus works just fine!)


Ingredients

  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp ground powder ginger
  • 1 yellow squash, sliced 1/4″ thick
  • 1 Zucchini, sliced 1/4″ thick
  • 1 Japanese Eggplant, sliced 1/4″ thick
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 store bought pizza crusts
  • 1 cup hummus, home made or store bought
  • 68 black cured olives, pitted
  • 1218 grape tomatoes
  • 1/2 tsp oregano (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)

Instructions

  1. Combine the salt, garlic powder, coriander, cumin and ginger in a small bowl and mix well
  2. Place the vegetables in a 9.6 cup Rubbermaid BRILLIANCE™Container, and add the olive oil and lemon juice. Sprinkle the spice mix, close container and shake it well until all the vegetables are coated with the marinade. Refrigerate for at least of 30 minutes
  3. Heat the grill to medium high and grease it slightly. Arrange the vegetables on it and grill them for 2 -3 minutes per side
  4. Spread 1/2 cup hummus on each pizza crust. Arrange the grilled vegetables, olives and grape tomatoes on top. Place it on the grill, covered, for 5-8 minutes, checking it after 5 minutes to make sure it doesn’t burn
  5. Remove the pizza from grill and sprinkle oregano and red pepper flakes if desired.

Notes

If you don’t have a grill,you can either roast the vegetables or sauté them on a pan, and bake the pizza at 450F for 5-8 minutes.
