Hummus Pizza: A Marriage Of Two Popular Food Trends

February 2, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
The plant-based meals craze has shouldered its way into Portland, Maine’s Olive Café and a couple of other eateries that combine two popular food trends – Middle Eastern hummus and pizza. The Olive Café began testing hummus pizza topped with fried okra as a special about two years ago. Grilled pizza restaurant Coals Bayside’s off-menu hummus pizza gained buzz at its locations in the Bronx and Port Chester, N.Y. Coals Bayside’s grilled pizza is topped with hummus, onions, cherry tomatoes, arugula, and spicy oil, and is vegan. In September, Maine's largest school district added hummus pizza to its lunch menu. The Mediterranean pie is "familiar to the kids and incorporates something for the vegans." The pizzas consist of flatbread and hummus with chopped vegetable toppings.[Image Credit: © muzo25 from Pixabay]
