Hummus & Grilled Zucchini Pizza

Hummus & Grilled Zucchini Pizza

Food & Wine September 2012

  • Yield: 8 servings
  • Prep time: 1 Hour


  • 7 ounce(s) container roasted garlic hummus (Sabra)
  • 3/4 cup(s) extrav virgin olive oil
  • s&p to taste
  • 3 medium zucchini (1/5 lbs.) sliced on diagonal 1/4 inch thick
  • 16 ounce(s) pizza dough 2 8-oz balls


1. Set a pizza stone in the oven and heat the oven to 500° for 30 minutes. Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. Scoop the garlic from the top of the hummus into a small bowl and stir in the 3/4 cup of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer 3 tablespoons of the garlic oil to a large bowl. Add the zucchini and toss to coat. Whisk the hummus into the remaining garlic oil and season with salt and pepper.

2. Working in 2 batches, grill the zucchini slices over high heat until they are lightly charred, about 5 minutes. Brush the zucchini lightly with some of the hummus and grill for 1 minute longer, turning once.

3. Lightly rub 2 sheets of parchment paper with oil. Stretch each ball of pizza dough into a 12-inch round on each sheet. Brush each round with one-fourth of the hummus and top with the zucchini. Slide 1 parchment sheet onto the hot stone and bake the pizza for about 8 minutes, until the crust is browned. Transfer the pizza to a work surface and drizzle with some of the remaining hummus. Cut into slices and serve. Repeat with the remaining pizza.

NOTE: Add grilled tomatoes.
