Blonde Pizza with Roast Vegetables and Hummus


ROAST VEGETABLE AND HUMMUS BLONDE PIZZA


I had you at pizza didn't I?

If you're anything like us you love pizza. 

Our standard choice is a Margherita pizza.

We usually pile it high with added veggies. 

We like to add mushrooms, onions, tomatoes and peppers. sometimes we will add sundried tomatoes or olives or we might at fresh rocket (arugula) when it is out of the oven.

This time we decided to try something different and went for a blonde pizza.


WHAT IS A BLONDE PIZZA?


A blond pizza is a pizza that has a white or pale coloured sauce or dressing instead of the more traditional tomato sauce.

It is also known as a Blond Pizza, a White Pizza or if you want to get all Italian, a Pizza Bianca.

The base of a blond pizza might be coated with:

  1. Olive oil
  2. Flavoured oil
  3. Pesto
  4. Ricotta
  5. Parmesan
  6. Mozzarella
  7. Cream Cheese
  8. Hummus
  9. White sauce
Of course, not all of those options are classically Italian, but they all work well.


IDEAS FOR A BLONDE PIZZA


Here are a few ideas for a blonde pizza:

  1. Pizza dough brushed with olive oil and topped with mozzarella (vegetarian or vegan), slices of courgette, slices of artichoke (jarred in oil) and spinach.
  2. Pizza dough topped with a white sauce, bechamel style (veggie or vegan), sauteed garlic mushrooms, topped with rocket (when removed from the oven.
  3. Pizza dough topped with a white sauce, topped with spinach, caramelised onions and pine nuts.
  4. Pizza dough topped with pesto, roast vegetables, sundried tomatoes, then when cooked topped with fresh rocket (arugula) and crumbled feta (vegetarian or vegan).
  5. Pizza dough topped with cream cheese, courgette, peas and spinach, drizzles with chilli oil.

HOMEMADE PIZZA DOUGH


Homemade pizza dough is great fun to make and made with a few basic ingredients.

Strong white flour, olive oil, yeast, water, a little sugar and salt.

You do need to plan ahead as it needs time to rise, be knocked back and rise again.

If you want to have a go at making pizza dough, check out my perfect pizza dough recipe or my wholemeal and onion pizza dough.


SHOP-BOUGHT PIZZA DOUGH


If you are short of time, you could also buy shop-bought pizza dough.

Look for it in the chilled aisle of your supermarket next to the cardboard tubes of pastry.

It's actually really good quality and saves a lot of time.

It gives you a fresh pizza dough finish but lets you fully customise your pizza.

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

  4. No way I am sharing, in Italy you eat the entire pizza. Those knives look very handy they are on my shopping list.

    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

    1. Ugh I can't stand brussels sprouts. And sharing a standard pizza NOOOOOOOO!!!!

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

    1. Thanks and no you wouldn't miss it with all that roast veg and all the flavours.

  8. A girl after my own heart. I love veggie pizzas:) I never thought of using hummus, this is exciting!

  9. Definitely the best way to put veggies on your pizza. Roasted. This looks so good!

  10. What a brilliant idea for a vegan pizza and on top of that a dairy-free recipe

  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.

    Replies
    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.

  13. I like pizza with no meat just veggies. And this one looks so yum, can't wait to take a bite.

  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.

    1. Haha thanks and I love you went all Italian there.

  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....

    1. It works well and is a nice change. Yes it sounds like you could do with a decent set of knives.

  16. You had me at roast vegetables! It is amazing how roast vegetables make everything just that little bit better!!

  17. Yum. Hummus and a warm pizza dough base. Sounds delicious.
