Pizza Dip (Pizza Hummus) – dairy and sesame free

Yum

This Pizza Dip (or Pizza Hummus) is Dairy-Free and Sesame-Free too. And super yummy. A great treat for those on a special diet (and even for those who aren't!)

I have a real treat for your today if you like hummus, bean dip, and pizza and if you’re looking for a healthy snack to add to your family’s repertoire.

A hummus recipe that is–well, pizza hummus.  Or pizza dip.  Or just a great tangy, spicy hummus recipe.

Or just plain yum.

My family loves hummus.

You wouldn’t know it by our grocery store receipts, however.

Honestly, I don’t know that we have ever bought full-priced hummus (and even on sale, I will say we’ve likely only bought it about 2-3 times.)

When you’ve got a great recipe for homemade hummus, and a great food processor–who needs to :-).

Truly, one of my husband’s favorite recipes that I make is our Savory Hummus.

You likely won’t believe how much of this I make at one time.

I literally get 10 cups (that’s 3 pounds, plus) of garbanzo beans, soak them overnight, cook them (make sure you read my post on How to De-Gas Beans), and then make one gigantic batch of homemade hummus.

Really.

And it doesn’t last long.

Recently, I saw Katie’s recipe for Melty Pizza Hummus and thought I should give it a try.

My oldest has a life-threatening allergy to dairy and so he’s never had store-bought pizza.

And making pizza can be a little bit of a daunting task for this busy mom.

But a dairy-free pizza dip?  That I could possibly pull off.

I changed the recipe quite a bit, and we LOVE the final result.

In fact, I’ve made it twice in one week.

And it’s disappearing fast again.

In fact, it is sooo good that my oldest son said that I don’t even need to make his requested pizza for his birthday– I could just make this instead.  (He was sort of joking, of course :-).)

Grab yourself some garbanzo beans and try this dip out.

One thing that is special about this hummus and my Savory Hummus is that they are tahini and sesame-free.  You could use tahini in place of the oil in either recipe, but I think that hummus without the tahini is refreshingly light.  (My son also is deathly allergic to sesame, which is why I started making hummus without it.)

I’d love to hear what you think about this dip!

NOTES:

1.   Nutritional yeast adds a super punch of protein and B-vitamins, if you get the supplemented brand.

2.  My family thinks this amount of crushed red pepper is a little too much, but for some reason, I’ve taken a liking to spicy food recently and I think it’s great as is.  And still, my sons have literally gobbled this up–spicy or not.

3.  Nutritional Yeast does not feed candida.  And if you are up on the controversy about free glutamates and excitotoxins, I have done some research into that and I decided that I am just fine including nutritional yeast in our diet.  I hope to share more about this in the near future.

4.  I didn’t try this, but I think you could make this with any bean, but white ones, like navy, would adapt the best.

5.  If you like, you could add a regular dairy cheese and I think it would taste great, but I didn’t try it.

This hummus is great as a dip, on top of rice, or inside a wrap.

You could try my Buckwheat Wraps or serve with my Focaccia Flax Bread.

“>Or…by the spoonful!

I personally enjoy a little hummus alongside an egg with veggies on the side.

Anyway, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner.

Might sound silly, but I think my husband would be thrilled to have hummus for dinner.  He’s pretty easy to please.

But he did ask for me to make my Almost Reese’s Candy as a treat.  Hopefully I can pull that off :-).

  1. Adrienne, this looks delicious! I LOVE hummus, but my kids not so much… and I have freshly soaked and pre-cooked white beans in the freezer that hubs has recently requested NOT to include in soup anymore (not a fan of the taste). I’ll be making this dip this week for lunches, with the white beans. Thanks for the idea!

  2. This is my favorite hummus now! Goodbye, Costco hummus! Thank you so much, Whole New Mom!

  3. If you are on a candida diet, can you have eat nutritional yeast, as this recipe calls for?

  4. This sounds really good – but I have to chuckle at the “3 3/4 tsp basil” as if rounding up to 4 would ruin the end result. Just strikes me funny. Can’t wait to try it.

    • It is a little funny – it’s b/c I make a LOT of hummus at one time and my large food processor holds twice the amt that I made the recipe for. 7.5 tsp is the amt we all agreed tasted the best, so I cut it in half :). I’m sure it wouldn’t make much of a difference though.

    Found your website a few days ago and I am trying one recipe after another (smiles). This one is FABULOUS! Although, I should have looked at the ‘yield’ before I made it because it is just me eating it. Even as much as I love it, I am not sure I can (or should lol) eat it all before it goes bad. How long does it keep in the fridge; and can you freeze it?

    • You can freeze it but might need to add more oil before serving. The texture will be a little different. I can’t say how long it lasts – that would depend on a lot of factors, but I haven’t had it go bad too quickly.

  6. I have a severe intolerance to olives. Do you think I can substitute the olive oil with avocado oil?

  7. This sounds delicious! I can’t wait to try it, we are definitely trying this for lunch this week. :)

    Oops. I just used instant yeast instead. Will this rise now and not taste good?
