This Pizza Hummus Recipe is an easy dip for pizza lovers! No oil or tahini required, and takes only minutes to make!
Morning love bugs!
Sorry for missing you this Friday. Life gets in the way sometimes, and loves to come and interrupt your big weekend plans.
But today's a new day and I'm back in action for another Recipe Redux!
Two for One
We’re all about cooking once and eating twice. In short, double dinners are better. Show us how you take a favorite recipe already on your blog – and ReDux the leftovers into a new dish. Or, whip up a new healthy recipe and give suggestions on how to make it a second meal. For example, slow cooker pot roast could become shredded beef tacos; or grilled chicken breasts might morph into chicken salad.
So you make a pizza. Veggies. Cheese. And a smothering of sauce. Fancy me this..Does anyone out there ACTUALLY use a whole jar of sauce on a pizza? You my friend, are a rare breed.
I on the other hand, always end up with half a jar of pizza sauce buried deep in the depths of the fridge door, until it is finally discovered a month later when I make the rare reach for a bottle of Worcestershire. Except now it has grown a spiffy white furry coat. You ain't even gotta sniff test that one sonny.
Instead of letting that sad jar never see another disc of dough in its lifetime, why not give it a new spreadable edible persona?!
I channeled my long lost soul roomie, Betty Rocker on this one, since she has given me the support I need all the while recovering from a recent surgery. Feel better soon my love!
I know these pizza and hummus are two of her favorite food...groups, so I thought I would combine the two into one fabulous food. Now if I could find a way to ship me and a batch of pizza hummus down South into one flat rate box, that would be greeeeattt.

Looks like we both have pizza on the brain! Pizza happens to be my favorite food, so I'm going to have to give this one a try!
Pizza seriously is it's own food group. Right next to peanut butter and wine. 🙂
