Mediterranean Hummus Pita Pizza

“I received free samples of Sabra Hummus mentioned in this post. By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by Sabra and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.”

Sometimes we just need a little fresh flavor change to spice up your snack routine.  Am I right?!

Enter some flavorful options from Sabra {www.sabra.com}. Since National Hummus Day is just around the corner- this Saturday, May 13th! – and I can always use a good snack mix-up, I made this delicious and easy Mediterranean Hummus Pita Pizza that is oh-so-good and satisfying! Not to mention, as always, it’s nutritious!

You may be surprised to hear that there are still people out there that do not know what hummus is!

Don’t be ashamed, if that’s you!  It’s simply ground up chickpeas {also known as garbanzo beans} that are blended with Tahini {aka ground sesame seeds}. That’s basically it- of course, you can always add more flavor with garlic, lemon, and peppers!

It’s a simple Mediterranean-style dip that provides heart-healthy fats, a bit of fiber, and plant based-protein! It goes great with just about anything- from chicken to veggies to, of course, whole grain pita!

It can even be transformed into a key ingredient in a mouth-watering snack or appetizer!

My Mediterranean Hummus Pita Pizza is a heart healthy option that’s satisfying and energizing by containing a balance of fiber, protein, and plant-based fats. It’s also versatile, simply make it vegetarian by omitting the chicken!

Mediterranean Hummus Pita Pizza

Serves: 2

Ingredients:

1 whole grain pita bread

1/2 cup Sabra Hummus {I used the Supremely Spicy variety for added heat and flavor}

4 ounces roasted chicken breast

1/4 cup spinach

1/4 cup grape tomatoes, halved

1/4 cucumber, sliced

freshly ground black pepper

Directions: 

Grill or bake (at 350) the pita for a few minutes until slightly toasted and warmed through to soften (about 5 minutes total).

Spread on the hummus. Top with diced or shredded roasted chicken {I used up leftovers here}, tomatoes, and cucumbers. Finish by sprinkling on some freshly ground black pepper.
