Greek and pizza might not seem like two words that go together, but why not serve fresh Greek flavors on a pie?

After all, flavor combos that work as a salad often also work as pizza. Margherita Pizza? Basically a Caprese Salad thrown onto a crust.

And this approach makes for a better-for-you pizza since it’s spread with hummus, an excellent source of plant-based protein, and then topped with plenty of veggies (and minimal cheese).

Make it for an easy weeknight dinner you’ll have on the table in under an hour.

WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE

Homemade pizza is easy to prepare and is generally better for you than delivery, since (if?) you can control the ingredients. This one comes with creative Greek flair and is a great plant-based dish to help you cut back on meat at every meal. It’s also piled with antioxidant-rich veggies and herbs.
