Two of my favorite comfort foods come together in one delightfully light dip. Be sure to use the best quality sun-dried tomatoes you can get your hands on for best results.

If you can’t find “pizza spice”, it’s basically just a mix of pizza type spices (oregano, fennel seed, rosemary, basil) mixed with a little dried garlic and onion. So, feel free to season as you please. I personally adore the pre-mixed spice blends, because they really nail that authentic pizza parlor flavor.

Pizza Hummus

  • 3 cups cooked chickpeas, rinsed and skins removed
  • 1/3 cup sundried tomatoes (soak for 30 minutes)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons cold water
  • 2 teaspoons pizza spice
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons tahini (optional)

Place all ingredients into a food processor and blend for 6 to 7 minutes, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl often. Serve with (gluten-free) toasts, crackers, tortilla chips, or as a spread on a sandwich or in a wrap. It’s all good!

    I’ve seen “red” hummus prepacked before but never had a closer look at it or tried it. Looking at that photo I think I am gonna try this out at the weekend, it will make a great spread for our sunday morning breakfast!

  6. Pizza hummus?! I’m so intrigued! I love hummus but I’ve never tried anything out of the ordinary. Great idea!

  7. I love this idea! I think it’d be perfect spread on a socca pizza (gotta love chickpea on chickpea).

    Looks delicious! How long would it keep in the fridge roughly?
