Very different but in the end, the taste overpowers your idea of the norms. At first the crust threw me off for the reason that one doesn't expect it not to be doughy. It is more like a flavorful cracker that is crisp and dense, but once you get over it, you realize the it tastes really good. The ingredients in the dough give a flavor punch and the toppings match it well. Upon the second day, I was craving more and it's inspired me to make some "healthier" options by using out of the ordinary ingredients. What I've learned with this particular recipe is that because it's healthy doesn't mean that it's flavorless. I drizzled some fruity virgin olive oil over the top and I was satisfied with my decision. For the hummus, I used one that is topped with hot chilis and it really tasted good with the "hot" addition. Thank you ImPat for sharing! Made it for Billboard Tag.

Daily Inspiration

Made this chickpea pizza today for lunch. I used a roasted red bell pepper hummus and I used all other ingredients with the exception of the pumpkin. Definitely filling and a good substitution for traditional pizza ingredients. It was a little chewy, but to bake it any longer would have burned the ingredients.
