Roast Vegetable and Hummus Pizza (vegan and dairy-free)


I had you at pizza didn't I?

If you're anything like us you love pizza. Our standard choice is a Margherita pizza with added veggies, but today we decided to try something different and went for a blond pizza with roast vegetables and hummus.

The truth is we've had pizza twice this week. Cooper wanted to make pizza from scratch so he and I both worked on a dough and we ended up with too much pizza for one night.

The first night we had it our favourite way. Our homemade thin pizza base, topped with my whizz bang pizza (blender) sauce, then mozzarella (vegan for Graham) and lots of veg. Cooper had sweetcorn on his, he likes to keep it simple.

The second night I spread the pizza base with a thick layer of hummus, topped it with lots of freshly roasted vegetables, a sprinkle of oregano, paprika and black pepper and a drizzle of olive oil. It was actually really good!

How do you eat pizza?


Now there's a question. Do you.......

  1. Eat a whole pizza
  2. Eat a slice with salad
  3. Eat a slice with a baked potato and salad
  4. Just eat a slice (because you are a control freak, well come on you must be)
  5. Eat a whole pizza with a fork and knife
  6. Slice a whole pizza and eat it with your fingers
  7. Slice a pizza and share it

Call me a freak, but I like to eat a whole pizza (no sharing, sharing you're kidding aren't you), not a massive one you understand, just a thin one, the size of a plate and I like to use a fork and knife.



Yes, I know you've seen that photo of me stuffing a pizza in my mouth and no fork or knife in my hand, but that was just for the photo, when the camera was turned I probably got my knife and fork out.

Yeah, so occasionally we have a takeaway pizza that's already sliced and I eat it with my fingers out of the box, but if I'm in a restaurant or if I've cooked it at home I like to use a knife and fork. 

And you know what drives me freaking crazy?


Blunt knives that won't cut through the damn pizza! I don't have that problem at home because I have sharp pizza knives, but when you're in a restaurant and they hand you a bloody butter knife and expect you to cut through the pizza with it....... GRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!

Restaurant beware!!!!

    1. It's a nice change to tomato sauce for a completely different kind of flavour punch.

    1. Violife do a fairly good mozzarella that melts well. It's made from coconut milk. The one pizza express uses is really good, I can't remember the name of the one they use, but if I remember I will let you know. Yes to the whole pizza and fork and knife.

  6. we made pizza a lot - E and I usually share one and we had a brussel sprouts one that worked well - I have been meaning to try hummus on a pizza but have felt unsure so this recipe will come in handy

  7. This looks lush. Can't believe it's vegan. It definitely doesn't look as though you'd miss dairy while eating it!

  11. I've never tried hummus on pizza - usually go for pesto - but this sounds so good! And so many flavor combos too. Love it!

    1. Oh yes pesto is good too, but then it's good on just about everything :)

  12. Great idea to use hummus on pizza - I can't wait to try it! I agree, blunt knives are the worst. I love my sharp ones (including some Robert Welch!), so it's annoying to go to someone's house or a holiday home and be faced with blunt ones.

    1. Oh I know, it's really annoying. What a difference to have a good sharp set like this. It's such a treat eating with good cutlery too. The sounds mad, but it does make a real difference.

  14. This is GENIUS! I'm not all that keen on lots of tomato sauce on a pizza so will often go for Pizza bianco. Next time I'm using hummus.

  15. Never heard of hummus being used as a pizza topping before - sounds interesting! Hmmm, I cut a pizza with a blunt knife today. The result wasn't very sexy....
