Yellow Squash Hummus Pita Pizza

What you need: 

1 box or can prepared hummus
OR next five ingredients
1 can garbanzo beans/chick peas
4 tablespoons Tahini
roasted red peppers
garlic to taste
lemon juice to taste
whole wheat pita bread (1-2 whole rounds per person)
4-6 large yellow squash, washe'd not peeled
fresh garlic
2-3 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 small sweet yellow (Vidalia type) onion, diced
1/2 cup cheddar type vegan cheese alternative
lemon pepper to taste

What you do: 

Prepare hummus according to package instructions, or put garbanzo beans, tahini, red peppers, garlic, lemon juice, or whatever seasonings you like, into a food processor to create hummus.
Slice the yellow squash into rounds about 1/8-1/4 inch thick each. In a large skillet, heat olive oil on medium and add squash and diced onion to skillet. Stir fry until golden. Add lemon pepper and garlic to taste. If desired, add vegan cheese alternative while still in skillet after removing from heat source.
Next you simply spread a layer of your hummus onto your pita, as you would sauce onto a pizza crust, and then top with a generous amount of squash, onion, and vegan cheese mixture. Serve immediately.
This is SO delicious, and the hummus is packed with protein. Its a great alternative to pizza, and its the only way I like squash. Its also a fast and easy appetizer for impromptu parties.

Delicious and different - and best of all, easy! I used Fantastic Foods boxed hummus, a small white onion, and I omitted the vegan cheese. Otherwise, I followed as directed. It was tasty! I think I might toast the pitas a little next time to make it even better. Thanks for a great easy recipe!


Very different! I usually eat my yellow squash in sweet dishes (either with a bit of sugar or earth balance, or in combination with sweet fruits like strawberries) but this was great! I didnt have any onions so I used onion powder, pre-bought roasted garlic hummus on onion-flavored pita bread, with some nutritional yeast cheesy sauce from this site. I'm cutting it up and eating it like little slices of pizza right now  :D I was surprised that it tasted so good!! Thanks for the idea!
