Mediterranean Style Pizza :: Food

I have to avoid dairy products for a few months and it has finally appears to be much more easy than I though.... excepted when it comes to pizza !
I am a huge pizza sucker and the worst is for me not having my melted tones of cheese on the top.

The other main problem is that I don't like tomato sauce that much or it has to be cooked with plenty of other ingredients (such as in bolognese pasta) so I had to find something to change from it.
And this is how grew up the idea to make a humus base pizza ! Served with grilled veggies, pancetta and egg on top it was such a yummy (and healthy!) alternative to traditional recipes. You can also add some freshly shredded parmesan juste before serving for extra taste.

Makes 1 pizza:

1 store-bough pizza dough
1 zucchini
1/2 eggplant
Few mushrooms
3 pancetta slices
1 egg yolk

Humus recipe:
1 chick-pea can (around 400 gr)
1 garlic clove
juice from 1/2 lemon
2 tbsp tahin paste (sesame paste, available in organic store)
Salt, pepper, cumin and paprika (according to your taste)

* Start making the humus: put the strained chick-peas (make sure to keep their water for later, it will help to moist the humus), squeezed garlic clove, tahin paste, salt and pepper into a food processor.
* Mix until it makes a purée and slowly add the lemon juice keep mixing.
* If the humus is too thick add some chick-pea water, a bit at times.
* Add the cumin and paprika, stir and keep into the fridge until serving.

* Make the dough and bake it according to the packaging recommendations. Jab it with a fork and bake it. It will cook quite quickly, don't forget to check it out often ! Once cooked don't turn off the oven.

* While the dough is cooking cut the vegetables into thin slivers and grilled them with the pancetta.

* Spread generously the humus on the pizza dough, add the grilled vegetables and pancetta and top with an egg yolk in the center. Put in the oven for few minutes until the yolk has slightly started to cook and serve immediately.
