Raise your hand if you’re obsessed with hummus? I know you can’t see me, but both my arms are waving around like crazy! I first tried hummus back in college but my true obsession started once I graduated and needed healthy snacks to get through the day. I love dipping baby carrots, sliced bell peppers, and homemade pita bread.
When I found out Sabra Hummus was challenging Recipe ReDux members to create new recipes, I thought back to my reader survey – more dinner recipes, please! For all my recipes, I hope they inspire fun in the kitchen and are approachable enough to keep coming back to. I love baking homemade bread so for this recipe, you’ll be creating your very own naan flatbread. I find it therapeutic to knead the dough and encouraging to watch your family enjoy the bread you handmade. I don’t worry about making my naan perfectly shaped, I go for a more “rustic” look. As for the toppings, let your family pick and choose what they want! My favorite toppings range from kalamata olives to artichoke hearts, bell peppers, and red onion. If you’re taking a break from meat but have a carnivore in the family, purchase a rotisserie chicken for them.
Like I mentioned above, I have been purchasing Sabra hummus for years but tend to stay in my comfort zone with classic or roasted red pepper. I only recently learned they have over a dozen delicious flavors packed with plant-based protein! Some of my new favorites include jalapeño, caramelized onion, and sun-dried tomato. For these naan pizzas, spread on your favorite. Once you cook all the flavors together, they really compliment each other for a healthy and filling dinner that you can be proud of.
Naan Pizza with Hummus and Vegetables
1 teaspoon active yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
3/4 cup warm water
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
3 tablespoons plain dairy-free yogurt
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 (10-ounce) package Sabra Hummus, use your favorite flavor
1 (6-ounce) jar artichoke hearts, quartered
1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
1/2 Roma tomato, chopped
1/4 red onion, chopped
1/4 cup kalamata olives, sliced
Optional: Crumbled goat cheese
1. To make naan bread, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water and let sit for about 10 minutes, until foamy. Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, salt, and baking powder. Add dairy-free yogurt and olive oil to foamy yeast mixture and stir to combine. Pour into dry ingredients and mix using a fork then your hands. Turn onto a floured surface and knead until a soft dough forms, about 3 minutes. Place back into bowl and coat with oil. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit for 2 hours.
2. When the dough is ready, preheat the oven to 450 degrees F and place a baking sheet in the oven. To shape the naan, turn dough out on a floured surface and divide into 4 equal pieces. Gently knead each piece into a ball and let rest for 10 minutes. Once rested, roll each ball into an oval shape using a rolling pin. The general shape should be about 8-9 inches long and 4 inches wide. Repeat this method with the rest of the dough.
3. To cook the naan, place as many loaves that fit on your baking sheet. Bake for 3 minutes, until the bread puffs. Remove and repeat until all naan bread is cooked. Place on a cooling rack. If you are making naan ahead of time, store in an air-tight plastic bag.
4. When you are ready to make the pizzas, preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spread Sabra hummus over the cooled naan bread and top with veggies. Bake for about 10-15 minutes, letting the flavors develop and come together. Remove from oven, cut into pieces, and enjoy!
