Used store bought flat bread. Would make it again but it wasn't loved by all. Maybe try a different hummus next time, all said & done we ate it all.

Thought this was a nice change of pace from regular pizza. Very good.

Pizza base was a bit doughy and probably needed another minute in the first bake. Also used more hummus than required, which added a bit more flavour, if you enjoy hummus.

Reading the comments about how this was tasty but a little bland, I decided to add crumbles of FETA CHEESE to the pizza. Result: Pure amazingness. I never would have thought to put hummus and roasted butternut on a pizza and the saltiness of the Feta really added a great dimension to the combination of flavours. Definitely making again. Highly recommend making this with the feta.

I was honestly surprised at how delicious this was! It's a combination I never would have tried on my own.

I wasn't crazy about the hummus instead of sauce.
