I am enjoying this Monday morning behind a mug of extra strong coffee and sweatpants since I’m off for Columbus Day!
Which is double appreciated after killing my first 10k yesterday. It was a challenge, but a gorgeous day for a race. I’ll be doing a full recap soon, but I will tell you that my celebratory sweet potato & ginger donut from Holy Donut was so worth it.

If you follow me on IG, you may have seen the near planet of a cauliflower I got at the farmer’s market.
The farmer’s that charge by the piece instead of by the pound are always my favorites. Hence the reason why I was able to get a head of cauliflower the size of smart car for $4. Call me greedy, I call it resourceful.
With a stockpile of cruciferous veggies at my disposal, I knew I wanted to put it to use for the Recipe Redux’s Sabra #TwoSpoons Tailgating Recipe Challenge.
And being the dedicated football fan gal I am, I have yet to miss NOT watching a single game this season. One of the perks of not having and refusing to get cable TV.
And everyone knows it doesn’t matter if your team wins or loses, it’s how good the spread of tailgating foods is.
Pizza being a top contender. I’ve never met a person that actually didn’t like pizza. And if I did, I blocked that kind of negativity straight out of my memory.
But in true Sinful Nutrition fashion, I couldn’t just bring cheese and crust to the equation. No, there had to be some pizazz in that pizza. Something cutting edge, out of the (pizza) box. Something as strangely weird as I’m cracked up to be.
Where sauce becomes hummus. Dough becomes naan. Oregano goes curry. And the Italian’s lose their goddamn minds.
- 2 pieces garlic naan bread
- ½ cup Sabra Sun Dried Tomato Hummus
- 1 cup eggplant, diced
- 1 cup cauliflower, diced
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon curry powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon pepper
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
- ½ cup crumbled goat cheese
- 2 tablespoons dried cranberries, raisins, or currants (optional)
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- While preheating, place a large cast iron skillet into oven to warm.
- Chop vegetables, and add to a large bowl.
- Toss with oil, salt, pepper, cinnamon, and curry powder.
- Top each piece of naan with ¼ cup hummus, half the vegetable mixture, ¼ cup goat cheese, and a tablespoon of dried fruit if using.
- Carefully remove skillet from oven, and add prepared pizza.
- Cook for 10-12 minutes, or until crispy.
- Cut each into four pieces and serve warm.
I’ll be straight up, aside from olives, sun dried tomatoes are one of the only foods I’m not a fan of. But somehow in hummus form, and smothered under layers of curried vegetables and melty goat cheese, it works. I love the sweet, spicy, crunchy, and creamy combination this naan bread pizza brings to my non-football watching table.
Plus, each two slice serving has #TwoSpoons heaping spoonfuls of hummus, that will fill your bean recommendation for the week! Game day, game changer.
Your hot wings and onion dip have no idea what they’re in for.
