Mediterranean Hummus and Feta Appetizer Pizza

Here's a great party appetizer or even a fun dinner that's creative, fun and healthy too!  My cousin Jill made this for a girl's night (ok, girl's afternoon), and it was so yummy I had to share it with you.

Mediterranean Hummus and Feta Appetizer Pizza

1 pre-cooked pizza crust (here's a recipe for whole wheat dough)
1/2 cup hummus (here's an easy homemade recipe)
1/2 cup grape tomatoes, quartered
1/2 cup cucumber, thinly sliced
1/2 cup pitted Kalamata olives, sliced
1/2 cup red onion, sliced
1/2 cup marinated artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
1/4 cup feta cheese crumbles
a pinch of fresh ground pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground dried oregano

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Bake the pre-cooked pizza crust for 5-6 minutes, just to create a crispy base for your appetizer pizza.  (If using homemade dough, cook the pizza crust for 10 minutes or until it is browned slightly and crispy).

Spread the hummus on top of the pizza, much like you would marinara sauce on a traditional pizza.

Top with the grape tomatoes, cucumber, olives, red onion, artichoke hearts, and feta.  Sprinkle the pepper and oregano on top.

Cut into squares and serve as an appetizer, or a light dinner.

Serves 8-10 as an appetizer, 4-6 as a light dinner.

Perhaps the best thing about this is that you can really customize it to your tastes and preferences!

Life is sweet,

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
