The first time I made this crust was for a dinner party. I had a bunch of leftover beet hummus that I had made and I thought it would be fun to make a falafel-inspired crust. It came out fabulous! I decided to top it with some sun dried tomato hummus, and no lie—the chickpea on chickpea combo was fabulous! Protein packed for sure. Add some creamy avocado on top and some veggies and each slice was a few hearty bites of heaven. One slice is pretty filling, which is why this is meant for a crowd. It makes a perfect and beautiful appetizer idea. Perhaps the next football Sunday party!
