Pizza and Greek food are two of my favorite things to eat. I think what really does it for me with both is the soft, fluffy crust/pita, which sadly is usually pretty darn caloric. That said, it’s not too hard to get your bread fix by controlling portion sizes and keep whats on top of that delicious bread low calorie, which is exactly what I’ve done with this simple recipe.
The key to this simple pizza is 0% fat hummus. Hummus is generally loaded with calories, but by reducing or removing the fat you can mitigate this. The result is a healthy, veggie loaded “pizza” with lots of flavor, lots of bready goodness, and not too many calories.
