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.
