Veggie Pizza Appetizer

This veggie pizza has a flaky crust, fresh toppings, and a creamy spread in place of the traditional sauce. Throw it together in 20 minutes!

Try something more unique than the average party fare with this easy veggie pizza! Lightly filling and chock full of flavor, it’s the perfect addition to any luncheon, baby shower, or office potluck.

Plus, you can easily double the recipe or adjust the size of the slices to accommodate the number of guests you will be serving.

If you love this vegetarian pizza, try my Lemon Herb Margherita version! It uses homemade dough for a more traditional crust and is bursting with fresh flavors.

How To Make Veggie Pizza

This comes together easily, making it perfect for a last-minute appetizer that will feed a large group. It’s even great for dinner on those nights when it’s just too hot to cook.

Since it’s served cold, you can easily throw it together ahead of time and keep it chilled until it’s time to eat.

Keep in mind that the dough is baked by itself when making pizza with hummus. If you don’t want your toppings to be too crunchy, feel free to saute them for a few minutes on the stove until crisp-tender.
  1. Form the crust. Press the sheets of crescent dough evenly onto the pan, working up the sides as well. Bake until golden brown.
  2. Mix the sauce. Whip the creamy ingredients together with the seasonings, then spread over the cooled crust.
  3. Add the toppings. Sprinkle the veggies on top and slice into squares before serving.

Serving Suggestions

You can’t go wrong with a green salad or even a bowl of your favorite soup!

When serving this as an appetizer, keep your main course options simple and light. Or, provide a variety of options like Avocado Egg Rolls and Sriracha Honey Meatballs to create a casual meal perfect for grazing.

Kitchen Tools You Will Need
  • Stand mixer or large mixing bowl with hand mixer
  • Jelly Roll Pan - I use a 15x10, which is typically the standard size, to make this vegetarian pizza.
  • Pizza Cutter - A serrated knife will work in a pinch, but this tool guarantees even slices in seconds.

FAQ - Common Recipe Questions

Can I make this veggie pizza with regular dough instead?

While I haven’t tried it myself, I don’t see why not! Refrigerated tubes can be used to keep things simple, or try my easy 2-ingredient recipe for a homemade version.

How long does this last in the fridge?

If you will be preparing it ahead of time, I recommend no more than a couple of hours before serving.

Leftovers will be fine for a few days, just know that the crust will start to get soft the longer it sits. Keep well covered so it doesn’t absorb flavors or odors from surrounding foods.

What else can I add to pizza with hummus?

Really, anything you like that doesn’t need to be baked first! Halved grape tomatoes, sliced mushrooms, and drained artichoke hearts would all taste delicious.

For a little heat, try a little red onion or even a dash of red pepper flakes. You could also mix a few drops of your favorite hot sauce into the spread if you’d like.
