|Aren't they pretty?|
I will confess to using store-bought pizza dough and hummus, but I bet this would be even more amazing if you made your own.... which I just may have to do. The recipe called for Pillsbury pizza dough but I just used a bag.
Don't forget to poke holes in the dough cups before you bake them; if you forget they won't stay in cup form and you'll end up with dough pillows! I only found this out when I neglected to poke one of them :)
hummus cups with cucumber and tomato
from Inspired Taste
yield approximately 24 cups
1 can Pillsbury Classic Pizza Crust (or a bag of store-bought dough... or your own recipe!)
1/2 cup hummus
1/2 cup diced cucumber
5 cherry tomatoes, quartered
1/8 teaspoon salt
1) Heat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly spray 24 mini muffin cups with cooking spray.
2) Roll pizza dough out into a 14x12" rectangle (approximately). Then use a 2 1/2" cookie cutter to cut out 24 circles of dough. Press each circle of dough into the muffin cups. Use a fork to pierce the bottom of each pizza cup, 3-4 pricks per cup.
3) Bake pizza cups 8-10 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Transfer cups to a cooling rack to col completely.
4) Once cooled, fill each pizza cup with a heaping teaspoon of hummus, and then top with a few pieces of cucumber and a quarter of tomato. Finish with a sprinkling of salt.
