Veggie Pizza with garlic hummus

Hummus on pizza? You bet! The thick Middle Eastern sauce made with mashed chickpeas, lemon juice, tahini, and garlic totally transforms the notion of what pizza tastes like.

Ingredients

For a perfectly crisp pizza crust, invest in a baking stone — the porous ceramic absorbs moisture from dough and regulates oven heat. Be sure to preheat it before using.

Instructions

Combine water and yeast in the bowl of a stand mixer; let stand until bubbly, about 5 minutes.

Whisk together flours and salt in a separate bowl; add with oil to yeast mixture. Using a dough hook, mix dough on low speed until smooth, 7–10 minutes. Transfer dough to an oiled bowl; cover and let rise until doubled, about 11/2 hours.

Preheat oven to 475°, placing a baking stone or an inverted baking sheet on the middle rack.

Generously sprinkle cornmeal on a pizza peel. Press dough into a 14-inch circle on the peel. Spread hummus over dough, leaving a 1/2-inch border; top with remaining ingredients. (For two 8-inch pizzas, divide dough and toppings in half.) Freeze pizza at this point, if desired.

Slide pizza onto baking stone in oven; bake until crust is golden, 12–15 minutes (10–12 minutes for 8-inch pizzas). Remove pizza from oven and cut into slices.

This yeast pizza dough rises best in a warm environment. It will rise more slowly if your kitchen is cool.

You can freeze unbaked pizza on the peel. Once the pizza is frozen, wrap it and store it in the freezer.
