Hummus Veggie Pizza - a great healthy pizza for spring and summer!

So, some of you may have noticed that Sweet Little Kitchen looks a little different from the last time you saw it. That’s because yesterday I purchased and installed the Foodie Pro Genesis Child Theme. I am so excited about all the potential this theme has for Sweet Little Kitchen! Seriously, I feel like a little kid on Christmas. There’s a lot of blog-related projects I want to start working on soon – creating a custom logo, implementing custom social media icons, and adding a recipe index, to name a few. It’s definitely a commitment, but I enjoy it so much and I think it will be hugely beneficial to the site. I’m so grateful for everyone who has encouraged me throughout the process! Thanks guys!

On food-related note, I made a Hummus Veggie Pizza to get in the mood for spring. It’s simple and light . . . the perfect meal for sitting on a porch on a warm spring evening. There are so many variations you can make on this pizza – really, you can toss whatever veggies you want on it and it’ll probably be wonderful. I’ve done a vegan variant before by omitting the ricotta and it is still delicious. Also, you may notice in the recipe that I call for sliced red onion, even though it is not pictured on the pizza. Basically, I bought a red onion but completely forgot to put it on the pizza. It was good without the red onion, but I’ve made it in the past with the red onion and thought that was much more flavorful, so I recommend you buy one and remember to use it!
