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,
