This is from Bobby Flay's Pizzas on the Grill episode. Looks fabulous! Feel free to change out the vegetables! And the hummus all by itself is so good! If you want, use storebought pizza crust to make this go faster. Some even buy storebought hummus. I have changed up just a teeeny bit! Enjoy!

Directions

  1. For the hummus:.
  2. Place the chickpeas, garlic, cayenne pepper, lemon juice, honey and tahini in the bowl of a food processor and process until smooth. With the machine running, slowly add the olive oil until emulsified. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  3. For the pizza:.
  4. Heat the grill to high. Brush both sides of the pizzas with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill until golden brown on both sides, about 2 minutes per side.
  5. Top each pizza with the spicy hummus. Arrange desired veggies on top of the hummus and top with the goat cheese. Season with salt, pepper and ancho chili powder. Place the bread back on the grill, close the cover and grill for 5 minutes to heat through. Remove and add black olives and fresh basil.
  6. Pizza Dough:
  7. 2/3 cup lukewarm water (105 degrees F to 115 degrees F)
  8. 2 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  9. 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  10. 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus additional for oiling bowl
  11. 1 3/4 to 2 cups all-purpose flour
  12. 1/4 cup finely ground yellow cornmeal
  13. 2 teaspoons coarse salt
  14. In a large bowl stir together 1/3 cup water, yeast, and sugar and let stand until foamy, about 10 minutes. Stir in remaining 1/3 cup water, 2 tablespoons oil, 1 3/4 cups flour, cornmeal, and salt and blend until the mixture forms a dough. Knead dough on a floured surface, incorporating as much of remaining 1/4 cup flour, as necessary, to prevent dough from sticking, until smooth about 5 to 10 minutes. Form the dough into a ball.
  15. Lightly oil the sides and bottom of a large bowl with oil, add the dough, turn to coat in the oil, cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour. Gently punch the dough down and divide into 4 equal pieces. Roll each piece on a lightly floured surface into a 10-inch circle that is 1/8-inch thick. Brush off excess flour and transfer the dough to a baking sheet, cover each circle of dough with plastic wrap and continue stacking rolled out pieces on top of each other. Wrap well with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to grill.

This is one fantastic pizza. The hummus recipe alone is superb, spiced up with cayenne. I used 1 tablespoon of harissa paste instead, and wow, it was wonderful!
