A very unusual pizza made with Pita bread as its base, the Mediterranean Pizza replaces pizza sauce with a luscious and pungent chilli garlic hummus.
The strong flavour of garlic and the earthy flavour of kabuli chana act as a wonderful base for typical pizza toppings like olives, capsicum, onions and cottage cheese.
A dash of herbs, common seasonings like chilli flakes, and of course a garnish of cheese before baking complete the pizza effect.
An innovative and off-beat treat that you are sure to love, the Mediterranean Pizza will also earn you your guests’ applause! Try other Lebanese recipes like Orange Sesame Tabbouleh and Fattoush .
