Pumpkin Flatbread Pizza Recipe:
For the Flatbread Base:
- 1 store-bought flatbread or pizza crust
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 cup Pumpkin Hummus (refer to the previous blog for the recipe)
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (optional)
- 1/2 cup diced red onions
- 1/2 cup diced bell peppers (choose your favorite colors)
- 1/2 cup sliced black olives
- 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese (optional)
- Fresh basil leaves for garnish
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat the Oven:** Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).
- Prepare the Flatbread:** Place the flatbread or pizza crust on a baking sheet. Brush it lightly with olive oil, which not only adds flavor but also helps to achieve a golden, crispy crust.
- Spread the Pumpkin Hummus:** Take your homemade Pumpkin Hummus and spread it evenly over the flatbread, leaving a small border around the edges for the crust.
- Add the Cheese:** Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese evenly over the Pumpkin Hummus layer. This creamy, melty goodness will help hold all your toppings together.
- Top It Off:** Now, let your creativity shine. Scatter the diced red onions, bell peppers, and sliced black olives over the cheese. These colorful veggies will add a pop of flavor and visual appeal to your pizza.
- Feta Finish:** Crumble the feta cheese on top of the vegetables. Feta's tangy, salty notes perfectly complement the sweetness of the pumpkin.
- Season to Taste:** For that final touch, add a pinch of salt and a crack of black pepper to enhance the overall flavor profile.
- Into the Oven:** Carefully slide your pizza into the preheated oven and bake for about 12-15 minutes, or until the edges of the flatbread are golden and the cheese is bubbly and lightly browned.
- Garnish and Serve:** Once out of the oven, you can garnish your Pumpkin Flatbread Pizza with fresh basil leaves for a burst of freshness and fragrance. Slice it up and serve immediately.
- Enjoy:** Gather around the table and savor the delicious flavors of fall as you bite into a slice of your Pumpkin Flatbread Pizza. The creamy Pumpkin Hummus base adds a unique twist that perfectly complements the savory toppings, making each bite a celebration of the autumn season.
