Buffalo Chickpea Pita Pizzas
These crispy buffalo chickpea pita pizzas are SO fun to make and eat. Grab some hummus and pita bread, whip them up in 30 minutes, and top with red onion, celery, a drizzle of ranch, and greens.
- 1 (15oz) can chickpeas drained and rinsed
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp onion powder
- 1/4 tsp paprika
- 1/4 tsp kosher salt
- 1 pinch cayenne pepper to taste
- a drizzle of olive oil
- 1/2 cup plain hummus
- 2 tbsp hot sauce* to taste
- 4 pieces pita bread
- 1/4 red onion chopped
- 1 stalk celery chopped
- vegan ranch dressing
- extra hot sauce
- greens (microgreens, cilantro, arugula, etc.)*
Preheat oven to 375F
Toss chickpea ingredients on a lined baking sheet and bake 15 minutes, stirring halfway. They’re going to get crispier on the pizzas later.
While the chickpeas are in the oven, mix together hummus and hot sauce to make buffalo hummus. Chop your onion and celery.
Remove chickpeas from oven. Place pitas on a baking sheet and spread with buffalo hummus, then top with chickpeas and red onion. Bake (again at 375F) for 10 minutes, broiling for the last 2 minutes.
Remove pitas from the oven and top with celery, ranch, extra hot sauce, and greens.
*For the hot sauce, I used Frank's Red Hot
*For the greens, I used micro cilantro because I received it in a PR package, but you can use whatever you'd like.
