It’s safe to say that during the hot summer months, most of us want non fussy, satisfying meals that don’t leave us feeling weighed down and lethargic. Whelp, this 30 Minute Mediterranean Flatbread with Hummus is a no cook meal that will leave you feeling great and your tastebuds wanting more! I love how simple this recipe is and aside from a weeknight meal, or lunch- it’s great for entertaining too! You could totally make your own hummus for this but I love making a “semi-homemade” version by doctoring up store-bought hummus. It’s so much quicker and packs a ton of flavor!
How to make Mediterranean Flatbreads:
- Start with a storebosugh flatbread or pizza crust like Stone Fire naan (my fave!)
- Hummus is the base of this and you can buy store bought plain hummus and make my semi homemade version (recipe listed below) or make my Cilantro Hummus from scratch. Tip: I love picking up a fresh batch of hummus from a local restaurant- it’s so much better than packaged!
- The topping for the pizza is chopped cucumbers, tomatoes, red onions with fresh herbs and garlic. Feel free to add other veggies of your choice like spinach, grilled zucchini, or some grilled chicken ! You can also add a grain like bulgur or wheat berry for added protein!
