Hummus Pizza

Okay…if you like hummus, roasted veggies and flatbread then you are in for a treat! Two words to describe this interesting take on pizza is DE-LISH.  No seriously, it is.  The Kalamata olives and feta make it extra special too.  Make it without the feta and it is dairy free.  The only thing that I didn’t like about this pizza is that I had no one to share it with.  Now I am just going to have to make it again so that my friends can enjoy.
