Chef's tips

  1. Use any whole grain flour to make the crust if spelt flour isn’t available.
  2. Swap red tomatoes for orange or yellow for more variety and an exciting color twist. Canned tomatoes can also be used in the sauce.
  3. Try different types of beans in the hummus or purchase it pre-prepared. Canned beans can also be used to make the hummus.
  4. Add other Future 50 Foods as toppings such as maitake mushrooms, kale, or broccoli rabe.
